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.

City Lights In the Afternoon

City Lights
Booksellers and Publishers
261 Columbus Avenue
San Francisco, CA 94133
415-362-8193

Often referred to as a literary landmark and one of the best independent bookstores in the country, City Lights in San Francisco has been on my bookstore bucket list for several years. What a pleasure it was to finally have a chance to visit this famous bastion of alternative culture. As I mentioned in an earlier post, my husband was scheduled to attend a conference in the City by the Bay, so I took the opportunity to tag along. San Francisco is full of bookstores, and I would eventually visit four of them. (More posts to come.) But of course, City Lights was the very first stop on my whirlwind bookstore tour.

Just for Fun

Attention all readers who have read and loved Jane Eyre or Wuthering Heights or any title by one of the famous Bronte sisters. This YouTube creation is for you. Actually, you may have already seen it. It's fairly old. I'd say it qualifies as an oldie, but goodie. As a matter of fact, even if you haven't read any Bronte books, this is still fun. I love it when the classics inspire fun. Enjoy!
