Where Books Are Loved

To piggyback on my last post about books, my favorite bookstore of all time - with Chamblin Bookmine in Jacksonville, Florida coming in a close second - is the Strand in New York City. Wooden bookshelves, LOTS of books (2.5 MILLION or 18 MILES of new, used, and rare books), a maze of a building (3 floors) with never-ending nooks and crannies, and rich history (family owned since 1927!). I have to pop in when I'm in the city...

It's where books are LOVED!
