PICS: World Famous Singer Spotted Looking For And Buying A Book At ‘The Winding Stair’ On Lower Ormond Quay

Is there anything more peaceful than walking into a book shop and just immersing yourself in all the pages that surround you.

Even the most famous of stars spend their days off looking for that one book that they just can’t seem to find anywhere else.

Florence And The Machine played Dublin’s 3Arena on Monday night but before the singer and her band took the stage, she set off on a journey looking for a book called ‘Daniel Deronda’ by author, George Eliot.

And she was in luck, calling the book shop “one of the best” in the world after her find.

The Winding Stair Bookshop is one of the oldest surviving independent bookshops in Dublin.

Its unique structure and atmosphere is what makes it so good. The front part of the shop stocks all new books while the smaller section towards the end of the shop, has second-hand books.

They pride themselves on having “a wide selection of books and also some more unusual books that are not normally stocked in the larger chains.”

So it’s no wonder that Florence found her long-awaited reading material in here.
