And then, right around the corner, is the large, bright
Doylestown Bookshop with lots to offer as these photos
This bookstore has been in business since 1998. I can remember when
the space was Musselman’s Department Store–lovely place. And when
they went out of business I bought two huge rolls of wrapping paper from
the children’s department—a zebra pattern and a zoo pattern and I still
use them—I think they were $3.00 a roll!
Anyway, this bookstore is a grand place and seems to have all the bells
and whistles of large city stores—(well, never in my life will I see
anything like Foyle’s in London . . .)
One thing I especially like about this store is the Staff Picks they feature.
A whole long wall is used to display these choices—and you can also go
online to read about them on their website.
The shop also sponsors book clubs with various interests.
On the whole, it’s a wonderful store to have nearby–and a
neighbor to the other two local stores in Part I of this posting.
What’d I buy? Magic Mountain by Thomas Mann—a summertime
choice for our own book group.
