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.

Old and New

Bound For Books
7570 E. 34 Road, Suite A
Cadillac, MI 49601

Thought by many to be near extinction not too long ago, bookstores have proven to be quite the opposite. In the current online shopping era when malls are struggling to stay afloat, and brick-and-mortar businesses are dropping like flies, new bookstores are springing up with frequency. Since beginning this blog, I have had the pleasure of visiting several brand new stores. I have equally enjoyed discovering an abundant variety of long-established stores. But discovering an old store and a new one on the same day! That's twice the fun. Yes, last month when I was visiting an oldie, but goodie, in Cadillac, one of my favorite northern Michigan towns, I fell into conversation with a couple of patrons who told me they had heard about a new store nearby. Of course I had to make the short drive to check out Bound For Books.
