I told this to a tourist and he smirked.
“You traveled so far just to visit a bookstore?”
And I felt a slight tremor of doubt. Since when you can’t like something as awesome as a bookstore?
Well, it may sounds ridiculous to some of you but I happen to like FNAC and I would happily visit it everyday for as long as I like for the rest of my stay.
(Note: The photo was taken when I was in Bordeaux. I went to FNAC in Barcelona, Madrid and Seville)
I remember being in Madrid during the launch of PSP in 2005 and most of the population wanted to bombard the basement to see the launching. I literally had to fight them off at the entrance because I want to climb up the 5th floor to finish a book I started the day before.
I was always happy and it felt like a natural habitat. It’s the calmest place for a restless soul.
I wish I was there now.
