Book/ Photo Hunter

Bookstore in Newmarket, Ontario

This week's Photo Hunter challenge: Book

This is one of my favourite places to look for used books and sometimes new ones. Everything is well organized in five large rooms. It's almost impossible to leave this store without purchasing at least one neat find.

I wish it was near me! Looks like it has a nice variety.

I also have such a place near where I live, named "The Book Store" in Penticton BC. Every time I pass this store, I enter and leave with a book, I am addicted to this thing called reading.
They have 5000sq feet of packed shelves of second hand books all in catagory order.

I have to stay out of bookstores. It's too tempting to buy books. I like this shot for the theme.

Neat shot! I used to practically live at the bookstore when I was earning a living but now that I am retired, I have to choose using the library more often. I still browse and occasionally buy a mystery. Ü

Over in Portland, Oregon, across the river from me, they have Powell's Books -- which is also online-- and they have a whole square block of books! It is fun to just browse!

Interesting coincidence...I wandered into a used bookstore yesterday and walked out with a novel.

Nothing like them!

Looks very organized, I'm surprise that you mentioned that most of the books there were 2nd hand. They look pretty new and definitely none with dog ear pages :)

Have a good weekend!

Bookstores, libraries and the like always have a special atmosphere, don't they?

I'll say it is well organized! At first glance, I thought it was a library!
