DO YOU READ ME?
Bookshops are not the only places where books are sold. They are places of togetherness in a neighborhood and often the first port of call for travellers who want to explore a city. Bookstores invite you to linger, to readings, concerts and parties; always with the aim of bringing together people who are thirsty for knowledge and curious and to make friends with strangers.
The shops themselves are as different as their owners. There are small bookshops where books are stacked up to the ceiling, minimalist concept stores and true book temples; they are located in apartments, on boats or in Gothic churches. Do you read me? brings together bookstores from all over the world and introduces some of the people who make them unique places.
