If you're looking a holiday a little bit out of the ordinary and you love to read, then the book-themed holiday might be just what you need as a vacation. Stepping outside of the work-free vacation mantra, this holiday lets you stay above a bookstore and also spend time working in it.

If you love literature and find yourself at your most relaxed state when you are surrounded by it, then the Bookshop Holiday might be something worth looking into. The venue is operated through Airbnb and located in Wigtown, Scotland. The Open Book is the name of the venue where guests are invited to stay above the shop and also work 40-hour weeks downstairs at the storefront. While working on holiday might seem like a drag, if being surrounded by books is appealing to you it might not feel like work at all. Guests are able to use bikes provided to explore the town, are encouraged to blog about the experience and receive a discounted rate to stay at the equivalent of $24 US a night.
