Have I ever found a more peaceful, sweet, and substantial bookstore nestled into a side street in a beloved historical town? I can't say I have. I first visited this bookstore in a light spring rain after visiting some authors' homes and wandering contentedly down cobblestoned streets, and it was the perfect and most precious surprise. The sign that reads "welcome dear readers!" made my sentimental heart glow. I cannot recommend this place more.
