When was the last time I had done this? I was bit undone, if you will, and delightfully taken back at the unexpected joy of it all.
The best bookstores are hidden gems. There is something endearing about those small outfits lodged in a basement of an old Victorian home or carved out in a nook in the heart of the downtown corridor. It's those bookstores that have corners and itty bitty crevices just wide enough for a slight turn on the heel that keep you keenly aware that if for just one miss step you surely will be met with a crashing pile of books in a heap at your feet. Yet one cannot deny, with such ominous danger all around, the opposing comfort it brings when one is surrounded from floor to ceiling with glorious books!
Yes, I do believe, even those who do not deem themselves avid readers would, possibly, if they truly let themselves be transfixed into a soothing lull browsing such a delightful establishment!
