For a bit of bookish therapy, head to one of two book shops that stand out in the city.
Waterstones recently renovated their site into a 7-floor mecca of literary goodness in the heart of the city’s shopping district next to the famous Bullring shopping complex.
Floor after floor is filled with all things scholarly and erudite with a friendly staff and even a coffee-shop that lets you take a breather from all the reading, although still surrounded by words.
For a more independent feel, head to Nostalgia & Comics, a bookshop on Smallbrook Queensway that is filled with the latest graphic novels and superhero memorabilia that is every comic book lovers dream come true.
