Unusual book store converted from a church in the Netherlands

Barnes and Noble store is a testament to the fact that people love to browse and buy books in a lovely, comfortable setting.  Wait until you see this unusual book store in the Netherlands.  It's an old church in Maastricht, which was built in 1294.  It's an appropriate conversion, because reading books is heavenly!

The old structure hasn't served as a church in over 200 years and was previously used as an exam hall for students, a bicycle storage facility, and even a Christmas market.

I'm grateful they haven't demolished the building because it has some beautiful artwork on the walls and ceilings!

Now all it needs is some comfy chairs and hot chocolate like they have at Barnes and Noble!
