I admit it. I cannot walk by the window of a bookstore without stopping to peer inside. At the Happy Historian Bookshop I pause long enough to read the sign while finding the door handle which will lead to shelves and stacks of books.
There is something magical about entering a bookshop. The staff is welcoming and knowledgeable and there are small passageways made for exploring.
Bookshops are also a great place to meet fellow bookworms and interview authors about the pleasures of writing. Please click on the Bookstore name for the tour and details on each of my visits.
