Those who have always wanted to dabble in running their own business and, specifically, a bookstore, may want to consider booking a ticket to Scotland in order to stay at The Open Book. It is an Airbnb with an interesting catch: Guests are expected to run the business downstairs in addition to pay for lodging. Of course, it's all quite affordable.

Located in the picturesque village of Wigtown, The Open Book was set up by the Wigtown Festival Company and aims to "celebrate bookshops, encourage education in running independent bookshops and welcome people around the world to Scotland's National Book Town." A playful endeavor, guests will be able to immerse themselves in the lifestyle of the Scottish town in a much more meaningful way while working with friendly volunteers and bookshop sellers.
