So if you haven't already stopped by and checked out Shawnee @ YA Fiction Review, she recently posted her trip to this amazing book store...well guess what?!
...I was there too! With her!
...Well actually I took her there for her first time, and that book store never ceases to amaze me! Honestly imagine this building, that looks small-ish from the outside, but is absolutely massive from the inside. There are bookshelves ten feet high, and only God knows how long! Books are overflowing these shelves, so the entire floor is covered in books as well!
Not only does this store have a zillion different books, but they're also used and cheap. Some books are already going for twenty five cents before you even walk into the door, and as soon as you step in, there are some more books for only a dollar!
The YA section is right by the entrance so there is NO WAY you can miss it! But if you have enough time on your hands and are lucky enough, you might find a few more YA gems hidden throughout the store!
I could easily spend a few hours in this store just looking, climbing, digging and hauling amazing books...and all on a college girl's spending budget! After I did that, I wouldn't mind running across the street, grabbing a Venti coffee and spending another hour or two inside reading.
I LOVE my Half Price Books, my Barnes and Nobles, my Book Outlet, and Amazon, but there is honestly just something magical about these type of mom and pop bookstores, that I can't even describe.
Do you have any local bookstores like this one? Is it overflowing with amazing books?
