Though you might luck out to find some treasures you didn’t know about when you go to used bookstores, I rarely find the books that I actually was looking for. This time though, I wasn’t even thinking of going into the bookstore when I was passing by one in Brooklyn. Then a guy came out and displayed one of these “The Quiet Book” I’ve been thinking of buying at the outside window. I started digging the box and found THREE books I’ve been meaning to buy. ANOTHER PERFECT DAY by Ross Macdonald, ONLY WITCH CAN FLY by Taeeun Yoo, and of course THE QUIET BOOK by Deborah Underwood (author) and Renata Liwska (illustrator). What a lucky day!! It was an absolute icing on the cake to step into the bookstore where there was no space to stand because the entire space was packed with books and the owner was smoking inside. I have not seen a person smoking indoors for such a long time, it rather amused me. Needless to say, all three books were amazing. And I have to say it was a much satisfying experience than getting books from amazon box delivered to my door.
