A Simple Six: The Bookworm's Attic

The Bookworm's Attic



We have passed by the Bookworm's Attic countless times. It is directly on the way to school. It was on the way to my friend's house when they still lived here for three years and it was on the way to Wal-Mart when we still shopped there. It's next to the library we have patron a hundred times. We are a family of readers. My daughter's idea of going to the mall with a friend, is to visit Borders. My idea of a date is going to the travel section of the nearest book store (Brent likes to go to the magazine racks). We had never been to the Bookworm's Attic, until today.

The reason's we have not visited the Bookworm's Attic seem trite, and now that we have walked through those doors, they are all embarrassing. I am pining to go back. I had to call a friend and gush over how wonderful it was to be in such a charming, warm and surprising place, in the path of our school commute. There were shelves of children's books, reading chairs, a Lego table, chapter books, new novels, a rare book collection, and my children's favorite, two dishes of candy. The music was good and I never notice the music anywhere.

One of the back nooks. There were several.

Discussion group space and a Lego table.







This may become our Thursday after school enrichment activity in addition to our curbside clean up project, which we also managed to do today, because we walked  home.

That's a coincidence! We went to our local bookstore for the first time yesterday too. We went to the art museum, a local cafe for lunch, and the bookstore. They're also all on the same block downtown, and it was nice to park the car once and walk from place to place.

Jason loves going there. They even have thing where you can trade in your old books for credits toward new books. Jason has done this a few times. Sadly, I have not made it there. Jason and Etta always go when I am not around.

That is a real disappointment, you should make a lunch date and go.
