Book lover's vacation

Today's LA Times has an article about travelling to a book lover's mecca in the Sierra Nevada foothills:
No less a personage than Richard Booth, who turned Hay-on-Wye in Wales into the world's first book town, had given his blessing to the Gold Cities Book Town Assn., placing the neighboring Gold Rush hamlets of Grass Valley and Nevada City, Calif., in the company of such other bookish venues as Larry McMurtry's Archer City, Texas; Kedah Darul Aman, Malaysia; St.-Pierre-de-Clages, Switzerland; and Fjaerland, Norway.
Of course in addition to the book shops, there is the scenery and small town charm.

Sounds like an ideal vacation to me.
