Cool Bookish Places: Hay-on-Wye

As a roving reporter for Book Riot, I willingly take on all the hard assignments. Whether I’m snuggling in a chair with a cat and a book, or curled up on the couch with a cat and a book, or stretched out in bed with a cat and a book, I really do sacrifice myself to bring you the big book stories. I’m in Wales teaching this month, so I took my weekend to visit booklover’s paradise Hay-on-Wye in the gorgeous Brecon Beacons of the Welsh border country.

Hay-on-Wye has a population of 1500. It also has thirty second-hand bookshops.

You know you want to go to there.
