My Kind of Bookstore

It's the kind of place meant for wandering, perusing the shelves, and spending time, time, time.....

Square Books, founded in 1979, has become a mecca for Southern authors and readers alike.  

I had to visit.  A stay in Oxford, Mississippi, would not be complete without time spent at Rowan Oak, (done), and Square Books.  

They host over 150 Southern authors here each year.  It's the kind of place meant for reading and taking stock of the kind of reader you want to be.  Choosing just the right book and soaking in the ambiance......  you pick what appeals to you, what calls to you, and what you feel.  

"There is that romanticized idea of what a bookstore can be, what a library can be, what a shop can be. And to me, they are that. These are places that open doors into other worlds if only you're open to them."
