Church + Bookstore

I could get lost in this bookstore!  The Selexyz Dominicanen Bookstore in Maastricht in the Netherlands was originally a church that hadn't been used in over 200 years. There are a lot of abondoned churches in the Netherlands, and they are being restored and converted instead of being demolished. I'd love to see more restorations like this one.
