A Very Soulful Place

What's a college town without a used bookstore?

My family discovered this place outside of Ithaca, NY when we dropped off our son at Cornell for the summer.

All I could say was "Wow!" All three of us could spend hours and hours in a place like this. Books on all sorts of subjects lined bookcase after bookcase in every nook and cranny of this old barn (see the stone wall peeking through the shelves in one of the photos further down?)


Sorry about the poor quality of some of the photos, but I took them without a flash. I didn't want to disturb anything that might be living in there...


































As they say...A room without books is like a body without a soul. This place must certainly have quite a soul...

I love books stores. There is one about an hour and a half from us that has room after room and I love it - they are all old books no new.

Now THAT's what I call a bookstore. And in a barn no less. I wish I could spend a day there!
