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.

Add Another One To The Bucket List

The Open Book
Wigtown, Scotland

I am often asked if I would ever want to have a bookstore of my own. To this query I always immediately answer a definitive "No." I love visiting bookstores. I have no desire to be tied down to just one. But I recently learned of a unique shop where I could actually stay and run the shop for a week. That's right. Rent the room upstairs and tend the bookstore downstairs. Now this I would enjoy. What's more, the shop is in Scotland, a country I have dreams of visiting. So two bucket list items in one. Perfect. Someday . . .
