The key to a good used bookstore shopping list it to have a mix of books, genres, and authors, mostly backlist with a handful of newer books that would be really exciting to find. I’m not sure how well I’ve done on this list, but it’s a start.
As usual, my husband and I ended up in a bookstore on date night. I discovered a treasure trove of books about books and bookstores. How fun? Here are books about bookstores that I’m excited to read.
I find some places really conducive to getting lost in a book. Other places aren’t as helpful. They’re not as comfortable, or they’re filled with too many distractions, or are just plain loud.
My list is a collection of my favourite places to read. That doesn’t mean I don’t read in other places too.
