So, here’s the thing – if you want to live in an area with great bookstores, move here. These were outstanding bookstores.
I could leave it at that, but I promised I’d post photos, so here goes.
a small part of the group at Regulator Bookshop in Durham. Many thanks to the women of Durham Academy who turned up with teachers in tow, and the other teens who came even though they were on spring break. (We even had a teacher from Ohio who came on break!)
Quail Ridge Books in Raleigh was packed!!
One of my best buddies, Marnie, came out and brought me a corsage. *blush*
In a humbling and somehow appropriate display, Quail Ridge hangs nicely framed photos of authors who have visited their store in the bathroom. The tiny (yet powerful) sales rep you see is Doni Kay, who made my day fly with great conversation.
I have to wake up in five hours. Ack. I have set three alarms, and my BH has promised a back-up wake-up call so I don’t have another Kalamistake.
This is where you can find me tomorrow.
