THE BOOK SHOP in Wigtown, Dumfries and Galloway, SCOTLAND. Scotland's biggest second-hand ­bookshop... a mile of ­shelving holds books on all subjects and prices. There are sofas in the gallery and good coffee... ­Customers tend to spend hours ­browsing... 17 North Main St, Wigtown Tel: 01988 402499 ... Give credit where due. Pin from the Primary Source.

Hay-on-Wye, Wales, has a population of 1,500 and thirty secondhand bookstores. Since the 1960s, the town has taken in discarded tomes from across the anglophone world, and is known as “the town of books.” Appropriately enough, it’s also home to the annual Hay Festival, described by USA Today as “a geographically remote, bohemian version of the World Economic Forum’s Davos event.” Kindles, needless to say, are frowned upon.
