My Bookstore

I just found this book and I love it!

MY BOOKSTOREicon is a collection of writers writing about their favorite bookstore. Each one is a love letter to a particular bookstore.


I looked up authors familiar to me and read what they said, interested to see which bookstore they chose. I also looked for bookstores I know, to see who wrote about them. And of course it was great to read familiar authors talking about familiar bookstores (Chuck Palahnuik writing about Powell's in Portland, Isabelle Allende writing about Book Passage in Corte Madera, CA).

It was fun to see what made that particular bookstore special to that particular author. The book made me want to take a cross-country trip just to visit bookstores!

What is your favorite bookstore?

  1. Funny - just this morning I was thinking about what was once my favorite bookstore: A Clean Well Lighted Place for Books, in Larkspur Landing. I loved that place and how nice it was to wander around. Of course, I've since been to Powell's which is on a completely different scale, but ACWLPFB was a great bookstore.
