Summer Mornings And A Wonderful Documentary

Hello, Bookstore – Official Trailer

“Leaving any bookstore is hard, especially on a day in August, when the street outside burns and glares, and the books inside are cool and crisp to the touch; especially on a day in January, when the wind is blowing, the ice is treacherous, and the books inside seem to gather together in colorful warmth. It’s hard to leave a bookstore any day of the year, though, because a bookstore is one of the few places where all the cantankerous, conflicting, alluring voices of the world co-exist in peace and order, and the avid reader is as free as a person can possibly be, because she is free to choose among them.” (Jane Smiley)

  2. Always try to show independent, unique bookstores some love when I come across them. They are rare to come by these days in our parts.

    Bookshops do feel like that, places where words, characters and colourful covers co exist peacefully.
