About This Blog

Don't get me wrong. It's not that I'm not on board with the whole ebook thing. I enjoy books in all their formats. But there is nothing quite like a bookstore with its neatly arranged shelves of books and artfully created displays of new arrivals, best sellers, and suggested reading. I especially enjoy discovering small, independent bookstores and have made it my mission to visit and report back on as many of these gems as I can. That is my focus, but there is really nothing that is off limits as long as it is about books or reading. Hope you enjoy my blog and come back often.

Share: Interesting Idea


The latest thing in high-tech book sales?

The Monkey's Paw bookstore in Toronto has come up with a unique way to sell old books.

Yes, it's a vending machine.

And it's offering readers the adventure of randomness. Every book a surprise. The idea has caught on and become quite an attraction. I've added the Monkey's Paw to my list of must-see bookstores.

To get the whole story and see a video of the machine in action, check out this article:
