I submitted this very short description of The Book Lady as part of the Spotlight on Bookstores series. Every Wednesday, this blog hosts a section encouraging people to write about their favorite independent bookstore.
I love to frequent a little, independent, used bookstore called THE BOOK LADY, on Liberty Street in Savannah. It is nestled a couple of steps down from the street level, in the lower level of an historic old home in downtown Savannah. Brick walls, stuffed leather chairs, fireplaces and floor-to-ceiling shelves, filled with interesting titles. Her desk is always covered with stacks of invoices, orders, and other books she is considering. She handwrites all of her receipts on a small pad. And there is nothing that can stump her encyclopedic knowledge. But the store has one more secret - a garden out back. A tiny spot of green, overflowing with flowers - a quiet place to shuffle through your latest find.
Submit yours, and encourage others to frequent these little gems.
