For voracious readers, a beautiful bookstore ranks up there with ocean views and new-baby-smell in the relaxation department. In honor of National Book Lovers Day, take a look at these seven examples of paginated paradise.

1. Libreria El Ateneo Grand Splendid // Buenos Aires, Argentina

Formerly a 1920s-era performance and movie theater, the Grand Splendid was the home of tango stars like Carlos Gardel.

Visit in the afternoons and you might get to hear someone at the piano taking advantage of the building’s amazing acoustics.
