    Love these book stores! And a great reminder to support your local independent book store. We are lucky. We have two!

      Our local independent bookstore closed a couple years ago, and it is missed. In the past, I have lived near Prairie Lights, The Red Balloon and Wild Rumpus — which are all fantastic bookstores. You are lucky!
