On a recent trip to Annapolis, MD, my sister introduced my youngest daughter and I to Old Fox Books & Coffeehouse. The “Welcome” on its website says, in part,
We believe in the power of stories to inform our humanity and in the value of a third place, where unrelated people relate in healthy public life. Books are gateways to all the great ideas.
You know what I say to that? Amen!
The first thing my sister showed us was…
The second thing she pointed out was…
The part of the store she knew I’d love the most was…
Comfy chairs, antique furniture and quirky accessories invite customers to stay in this enchanting shop. Too bad we had to go, but guess what I discovered on the way out?
Next time I’m in downtown Annapolis, I have to check out these two bookstores as well:
Its website says it carries “a vast collection of used, new, and antiquarian books, as well as amazing cards, games and puzzles, and interesting ephemera. ” I love this quote on the “Children’s Page.”
“To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark.” — Victor Hugo
