Books Rare

Came across this on Mental Floss today.. I like the idea of researching cool book stores to visit when we are travelling. I say this as a person who had to visit City Lights while in San Francisco and Shakespeare & Co while in Paris.

Ah, that lovely bookstore smell. And when it has that hushed feel, like church.

I like how Raina Telgemeier recommends the Kidsbooks in Vancouver. It sounds a lot like the fantastic Mabel’s Fables in Toronto.

I also like it when the booksellers hug your book choice and squeal with excitement and then chat with you pleasantly in an unhurried way for ages. Looking at you, Books & Co in Prince Edward County!
