I’ve found my new heaven. Brown Family Bookstore. It’s apparently run by an adorable elderly couple so i’m gonna have to stalk this place to see them for myself.

They do this thing where you trade in books and get prices knocked off the ones you want to buy. They keep your name in a book with everything you bring in and cross it off the list when you purchase something.

Ughhhh i’m in love!!

There are books that one reads over and over again, books that become part of the furniture of one’s mind and alter one’s whole attitude to life, books that one dips into but never reads through, books that one reads at a single sitting and forgets a week later.
