Created by a non-profit, the listing allows guests the freedom to interact with locals, aside from all the perks that come with the gig, (i.e. your own personal library). It also happens to be situated in Scotland's National Book Town, a hub that plays home to nine other bookstores, which means a lot of lit-obsessed tourists frequent the small business.
According to the ad, "The Open Book's aim is to celebrate books, independent bookshops and welcome people around the world to Scotland's National Book Town."
A stay at 'The Open Book' will set guests back around 28 pounds a night, or roughly $40, and claims that it will comfortably fit two people in the single bedroom above the shop.
