As if Edinburgh didn’t have enough book temptation…

I heard a rumour at the end of last year that a Middle Eastern specialist bookshop was going to open in Edinburgh. After months of intermittent hovering about on Google, I’ve finally found it… Le Troubadour on Henderson Row. Judging by the photographs of very plush rooms with luxurious carpets and antique furniture, and by the listings of obscure, bizarre, fascinating (and often excruciatingly Orientalist) tomes it’s going to be well out of my price range, but that may be a good thing. I shall still be heading down there to gaze longingly…
