where i like to hide out from the world...





this used bookstore is a 45 minute drive
away from me
but it is one of my most favorite refuges...
i don't always buy something
but i always leave feeling
calmer and quieter and happier...

shelves from floor to ceiling,
wood floors,
cbc playing in background...
vintage relics of advertising decorating the walls...

the childrens section
has the most beautiful muted natural light...
and warmth...

i love the bookman.

Next time I am planning to end up in PEI, you have to let me know where that book store is, it looks like one we could get lost in. (That is if you are allowed to tell mainlanders about it.)
