Neither of these literary houses are for sale, unfortunately, but then again, there’d be such a bidding war among bookworms that most of us would be disappointed anyway.

The older one: a school in Kent, England, that was once home to Charles Dickens.

Its Dickens connection isn’t what makes it so fantastic, though; that credit goes to the door disguised as a bookcase, featuring books that Dickens himself dreamed up.

(Literary Hub notes that Dickens also claimed that the home had wooden benches made with timber from William Shakespeare’s house in Stratford-on-Avon.)

Tours are available on select weekends, depending on the state of the pandemic.

And a newer one: a cabin built expressly for bookworms in the woods outside of Warsaw, Poland.

It wasn’t clear from Yanko Design's post whether the cabin's creators built it for themselves, a client, or rentals, but nevertheless, the cozy factor of the cabin — a fireplace! shelves galore! tons of natural light! — is off the charts and worth admiring.
