The Book Nook
120 E. Pine Street
Book people are the greatest! When I wear a bookstore shirt, I seem to attract them. They know I'm a compatriot from the nation of readers; I'm wearing a team shirt of sorts. Not long ago, while grocery shopping at a small supermarket near our cottage, I encountered a fellow bibliomaniac in the parking lot of all places. I was wearing an old shirt from Curious Books, and this gentleman recognized it. “Hey, I know that bookstore,” he said as I was about to load my groceries into the car. “It's in East Lansing, right?” Thus began a fruitful conversation about bookstores. “If you like huge used bookstores, there's a great one in Cadillac,” he suggested. Wow, I've been to that town many times. How did I not know about this? Of course, I made it my business to find out more, and a week or so later took an opportunity to visit The Book Nook.
