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.

Get Real

The Groove Record Shop
8747 Ferry Street
Montague, MI 49437

What do Frank Sinatra, Johnny Cash, Bing Crosby, Elton John, and Elvis have in common? They can all be found at The Groove Record Shop—on vinyl that is. I recently had the pleasure of visiting this treasure trove of music in Montague, Michigan. Now I know what you are probably thinking. What in the world does a record shop have to do with bookstores? There is a connection. I promise. I will get to that in good time. But first, let me tell you a little bit about this fun shop.
