Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about bookstores…
How many bookstores do you frequent? Do you have a favourite? If so, which one and what makes it so?
I’m trying to think of how many bookstores we have in town. There’s Waldenbooks at the mall, which I stop at whenever I’m there, usually just to browse. I’m a big fan of the library. We also have a Christian bookstore that I go to occasionally. There used to be a used bookstore downtown. I assume it’s still there, but I never go to it, because it’s just out of the way and I never fell in love with it.
My favorite book store is the Paradox Bookstore in Centre Market, Wheeling. It just has a lot of atmosphere and that book smell envelopes you the minute you wlked in the door. You can find books there that you can’t find anywhere else. Now that I’ve thought of it, I may have to make a trip down soon.
