I adore the written words, in most all it’s forms, and I don’t mind much if i’m reading something on a tablet or if it’s in my hands, heavy with unexplored pages. That being said though, I get kinda nutty when I find a good bookstore, like…..I will literally spend hours in said bookstore, secretly take photos, pile books into my arms like the world is about to end and books will become the new currency ( would that be wonderful or terrifying?) and chat up anyone working there. While I was in California on a recent trip, on the second day of my mini roadtrip, I passed through Mendocino, and after spending a bit wandering the lovely streets and admiring the calm and breathtaking ocean views, I spotted this amazing and downright fantastic place, Gallery Bookshop.
Just, insanely wonderful yeah? I need to go back soon, though I don’t know if I could leave a second time without emptying my savings, as they have an incredible selection of all kinds of books in every genre as well as a lovely selection of journals, cards and other bookish accessories and not to mentioned the best store mascot ever, a cat that I was introduced to as being named the”The Great Catsby.” Seriously, love this place.
