  1. Wow!!!! Ok I totally understand why you got married here, this is one of the best bookstores I have ever seen! The location, the floorboards, the typewriters, the nook… Just beautiful. I really hope I manage to get here one day!!

  2. Love this, Carolyn! 🙂

    Something about the layout and the way the books meander on the shelves along stairways and wooden halls reminds me very much of City Lights in San Francisco. Of course, there sin’t the gorgeous natural setting with that urban book landmark!

    I’d commandeer that writing nook for sure! Love that picture of you two. Thanks for sharing!

    • Thanks for taking a look! I was in Berkeley/San Francisco for about three months when I was 19 (lo these many years ago), and one of my biggest regrets from that stay is that I didn’t get to City Lights. The folly of youth, I suppose. Maybe some day!
