Favorite Bookstores?

I was just browsing Paumanok Review's Web site and saw on the news page that the editor is looking for pieces on favorite bookstores. I know some of you have favorite bookstores so I thought it might interest you guys.

I also have to recommend submitting there to anyone who's interested. Just because editor Katherine Arline always does such an amazing job with it, and she's a joy to work with. (I have had a piece published there, though it was last year.) I think she does a lot for new writers and I can't recommend the site highly enough.

Thanks for reading,

Interesting idea.

There's also a fantastic book store in the heart of South Street in Philly (umm, it might even be called South Street Books, but I can't remember) - also worth your time.

I wish there were bookstores like these in Baltimore...

Yay Amy! I'm so glad you stopped by!! :)

That sounds like a really awesome bookstore. You should write an essay about it and send it to Paumanok!

It definitely sounds like someplace I'd like to hit if I ever make my way to Portland... hmm, I wonder if that's where my friend Jim worked when he lived there...
