Out and About

I had the good fortune to have a day trip to Maastricht yesterday, where I visited the most gorgeous bookstore I've ever been in. It's called the Selexyz Dominicanen -- Selexyz because it that is the name of the chain of booksellers, and Dominicanen because it is located in the city’s old Dominican Church.

The best photos I could find are here.

Further descriptions here and here.

Highly recommended!


  1. oh now that's a bookshop to stay in.
    it's nowhere near the same but do you like the french bookshop near artsloi on the ringroad, it has at least a cafe a great selection of books and even an english section downstairs now. otherwise belgium is a little behind..

  2. Hi Honey. That's funny, I was just talking about that bookstore the other day. I don't know the name but I think it begins with an F. As a matter of fact I have never been in there! I know it is open on Sunday, too (a rarity as you know), so no excuses, I must get to it!
