Have you ever been lost in a book? Buried so deep inside those pages that time stops, and your worries float into the ether? That’s what it feels like when you visit The Bookshop on the Corner, a magical place, where you can while away the day reading in any number of the little alcoves here – that are intended just for you.
Choose a book, or rather, let the book choose you.
There’s no hurry here because there’s no need for it. Take as long as you wish. Let the words dance in front of your eyes while you’re transported to another world, far from our quaint little town: Ashford, Connecticut.
Books are haphazardly piled on the wooden floor, the light is dim, and dust motes float down like fairy dust when you swish your palm over a golden cover.
Borrow a book, or buy one, the only thing that matters is that you love to read. You might discover a town you’ll never travel to, but somehow after seventy-thousand carefully placed words, you’ll become part of the fabric of that place, even though you may never set foot on that glorious exotic land.
Memories come alive here. A few sentences remind you of the time of your life when things were different. When you were a whole other person. You shake your head in wonder, the memories rushing back like a movie reel.
Dog-ear the page like so many others have. Make notes in the margins. I don’t mind. If you love the book it should meld into your life, become part of you, and then others after you, who read the book, and bring it back to life, will see how it touched you, how it moved you.
When you leave, promise you’ll come back again and visit The Bookshop on The Corner…
