The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap...by Wendy Welch.
a lovely entertaining read. With the subtitle of "memoir of
friendship, community and the uncommon pleasure of a good book."
With a black cat pictured on the cover.
How could it be otherwise?
been enjoying this book, and will be sorry when I finish it tonight as
my go-to-sleep read. Ms. Welch writes of her own life starting a used
bookstore with her Scotch husband in small small town Virginia. This
book speaks of literature as comfortably as walking down the street
looking in shop windows, and yet the most memorable part for me is the
continuing stories of interactions with the customers of the book store.
did have to look it up on the map...and even then didn't believe
Virginia had a little town there...it's coal country, it's near KY and
TN...but not as near NC as I thought it would be. But it's just a stone
throw up in the mountains even so. Big Stone Gap, VA.
I highly recommend this book, and was delighted that our library had the large print version!
