Besides being awesomely cute and chock full of books, there are a lot of other surprises I found inside. I especially loved the poets' corner, where anyone could pen a bit of prose if they felt like it.
Feeling a bit hungry? There's a cafe on the second floor serving up deliciousness while you ponder which new read you want to buy.
In the children's section, the ceiling is plastered with dangling paper sculptures and pages of books.
I especially love Scarthin Book's philosophy of "taking refuge in the hearth of this place." There's no high-pressured salesmanship in this store . . . just a shared love of books.
Wouldn't you want to get lost in this labyrinth of titles?
And that's exactly what I did. I came away with so many books that I had to buy another suitcase to haul my booty home. #firstworldproblems eh?
