Tuesday Thingers

Today's question: Favorite bookstores. What's your favorite bookstore? Is it an online store or a bricks-and-mortar store? How often do you go book shopping? Is your favorite bookstore (or bookstores) listed as a favorite in LT? Do you attend events at local bookstores? Do you use LT to find events?

My favorite bookstore is always a "used" bookshop. I love digging through piles of old books and finding treasures that I didn't know that I wanted! My favorite used bookshop in New Hampshire is Books by the Lake in Bradford, NH. Tons of great books and always something new and different!

For "new" bookstores we have a nice local New Hampshire shop that has several locations, The Toadstool Bookshop. They have a great selection and always have something interesting going on.

I book shop as often as possible, even though I don't need any more books. When I can't find what I am looking for in a local shop I frequently use ABE Books for online ordering. I have never used Library Thing to find events but just went over there to check out what is listed and I was surprised how much is there! Definitely a resource that I will be using more often.

About Me

New Hampshire, United States
Bibliophile, Anglophile, Traveller... I have been an avid reader all of my life, since I took the Dr. Seuss Dictionary away from my Mom when I was less than a year old because I wanted to read it myself. In college, where I earned my degree in English Literature, I was often asked "What are you going to do with it?" Now I finally have the answer to that question!!! Being employed as a Flight Attendant for twenty years has given me a lot of life experience and, better still, a lot of time to read. I love to travel for fun, too.
