I think I have fallen in love and this time I have not fallen in love with words. This time I have fallen in love with a bookstore.
I haven’t just found out about it. It was always there. I’ve passed it for years but I never went inside. I even have been on its roof a lot. I climbed it and yet I never really noticed it’s greatness.
The magical thing about this bookstore is its location. It is inside of a big staircase. Now who doesn’t love that?
A couple days ago my friend and I were sitting at Starbucks across the street and my friend asked me if I knew what kind of store it was and I said I thought it would be a bookstore. We then decided to go inside and that was when it hit me.
All the books this store sells are about architecture, art, calligraphy, typography… I immediately found a couple of books I really want to buy but they all were a little expensive. I could spend hours in that store reading about watercolour, hand lettering and drawing.
Yesterday I woke up ad wanted to do something so I got up and caught the next bus to the train station. I then took a 30-minute train ride and spend over an hour at Starbucks drawing the bookstore I have fallen in love with. Then I went inside, read a little and found even more great books. I ended up buying a small book about drawing and some really cute dog paperclips, which were expensive but I wanted them.
Are there any stores you have fallen in love with?
Lots of Love
