Where in the World are you reading is a new monthly meme introduced by Trish at Love, Laughter, and a Touch of Insanity, Kailana at The Written World and Lisa at Books Lists Life. The first place everyone is sharing is their favorite local bookstore.
One of the places I love to visit is Old Firehouse Books. It is a truly wonderful store that sells both new and used books. Their customer service has been nothing but fantastic. Not only will they order a book for you if they don’t have it in stock, they will take your name and let you know when they get a used copy if that is your preference.
They are located in our Historic Downtown area in, you guessed it, the old firehouse. It is such a neat building and the atmosphere in the store is fantastic.
Old Firehouse books is a proud supporter of local authors. Attending one of their author lunches is how I learned about the Kelly Flynn Mysteries, written by Maggie Sefton that are not only written by a local author but are set here as well. They frequently host author events. I was incredibly bummed that I wasn’t able to attend when Eleanor Brown, author of The Weird Sisters was in town.
They have recently begun hosting a number of Book Clubs, but I have yet to be able to give one a try. I’m hoping to do so soon.
So there you have it, my local bookstore. Have you shared yours?
