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.

Imagine A Very Special Place

Storybook Village
560 S. Hancock Street
Pentwater, MI 49449

Attention, all elementary school teachers! Okay, I should also include parents of elementary and preschool children as well as grandparents, aunts, uncles, people with fond memories of childhood, adults who are still children at heart, not to mention all individuals with creativity and imagination or the appreciation of said qualities. And since I believe everyone has some amount of creativity and imagination, I guess I mean attention, everyone! Do I have a bookstore for you. In the small Michigan lakeside town of Pentwater, I recently had the joy of discovering Storybook Village, not just a bookstore, but an imagination store.

Another World Record

(If you missed it, here's a link to my post about Seattle's chain.)
