Book Lover's Heaven

If you are a writer or simply a book lover, your mecca should be the Lello Bookstore or Livraria Lello in Porto, Portugal. I have not been there but I already memorized the address: Rua das Carmelitas 144, Porto. Older than Baguio (opened in 1906), it has an Art Nouveau facade. Its red staircase, stained-glass ceiling with 'vecus et labore' and the bronze Portuguese literary figures (when is Saramago going to be placed on the pedestal?) must be a delight. If you can, get your own book and just drop it among the books so you can casually say, "Well, you can also get my book at Lello."
