Stanfords (London)

斯坦福书店(伦敦) 【凹~~我去过这个哎】



                                

This large and airy store in the heart of London's Covent Garden should come with warnings of itchy feet. To gaze across the shelves in Stanfords -- one of the world's finest travel book shops -- is to consider a world of adventurous opportunities.

这间在伦敦考文特花园核心地带巨大的书店应该竖立一个脚痒的警示牌。浏览着斯坦福书店书架上的书——世界上最好的旅行书店之一——就像是在世界进行了一场冒险旅行。                                                                                          

                                                                                                           

This is the place to go for anyone embarking on foolish treks into the Great Unknown.

这对任何人来说,想踏上一片未知的土地,这都是你该去的地方。                                                            


No matter how unknown the Unknown is, Stanfords probably has not only a guidebook, but a fold-out street map detailing where to find the Unknown's best cocktails.

不管这片土地是多么未知,斯坦福书店大概不单只有指南,也还有一种可以折叠的街道地图,详细的可以告诉你在哪里可以找到那片未知之地最棒的鸡尾酒。                                                                                                                                                

It's not just guidebooks and maps.

它不只是有指南或者地图。


There's a comprehensive selection of travel writing, including many obscure texts.

它还有全面选择的游记,包括许多不起眼的文本。                                 


For those looking for that little-known account of mountain prawn hunting in Bhutan, or crossing the Kalahari on a spoon, Stanfords is a safe bet.

对那些想要寻找鲜为人知的项目,例如不丹山上捕龙虾,或者用一把勺子穿越卡拉哈利沙漠的人来说,斯坦福书店不失为一个提供经验的好去处。

Parnassus Books (Nashville, Tennessee)

帕那索斯书店(什维尔,田纳西州)



      

When "Bel Canto" author Ann Patchett opened a bookstore in Nashville on a whim, with a partner she'd just met, she didn't expect to be become the unofficial spokesperson for independent bookstores struggling in Amazon's wake.

当“美声唱法” 的作者安.帕奇特一时兴起与她刚结识的一个伙伴在什维尔开了一家书店时,她没有想到她会变成独立书店在亚马逊觉醒中挣扎的非官方独立代言人。                                                                                                                  


Patchett's efforts to publicize the store thrust it immediately into the literary spotlight when it opened, securing a New York Times front page story and a spot on "The Colbert Report."

当书店开业时,帕奇特的宣传力度立刻打开了对文学的聚光灯,它保住了纽约时报的头版故事,以及对“科尔伯特报告”的关注。                                                                                                 


Thanks to Patchett's connections, Parnassus -- an ancient Greek term for the world of poetry -- has no shortage of famous writers (David Sedaris, Jonathan Franzen and Michael Pollan among them) turning up to read from their latest books.

得益于帕奇特的联系,帕那索斯——古希腊语中为诗的世界——从来不缺著名的作家(大卫.希德莉斯,乔纳森.弗兰岑以及迈克尔.波轮都包括在其中)前来朗读他们的最新作品。

                                                                                                                                                          

As befitting its location in the birthplace of country music, the store carries a thoughtfully curated music section.

由于书店位于乡村音乐的发源地,这家店的背景音乐也是极其舒缓醉人的。                                             


"I get to recommend the books I like to read," Patchett tells CNN. "All my life I've loved telling people what books I think they'll love, now I have a lot more people to tell."

“我获得推荐我喜欢的书的机会,”帕奇特告诉CNN。“我这一辈子都喜欢推荐别人看我觉得他们会喜欢的书,现在我可以告诉更多人了。”                                                                                        


Parnassus Books, 3900 Hillsboro Pike, Nashville, Tennessee; +1 615 953 2243; Monday-Saturday 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sunday noon-5 p.m.

帕那索斯书店,田纳西州什维尔希尔斯博派特路3900,;电话:+1 615 953 2243;营业时间:周一至周六:上午10点至晚上8点,周日:中午12点至下午5点。
