The fine blogger of The Bookshop Blog wrote ‘Remembrances of Bookstores Past.’
Like her, I remember a mystery bookstore – though mine was in Santa Monica. I was never a big reader of mysteries, but the store stuck out because I my mother loves mysteries and when she came to visit, I made a special effort to take her there.
While trapped in New York City, near Columbus Circle, I was fortunate enough to stumble upon Rizzoli’s while far afield and have great respect and affection for the selection I found there. Nothing better than a well curated bookstore.
