Word on the Water is London’s only floating bookshop. The quirky secondhand store has been popping up on London canals for almost three years and is currently moored outside of Paddington Station. The resident owner, Paddy Creech, not only sells affordable recycled books, but also hosts frequent free jazz concerts and poetry readings. Rumor has it that the old Dutch barge is moving on to a spot in Little Venice soon. You can follow its travels on Twitter @wordonthewater .
