Went to visit one of my local bookstores with my family yesterday and we only meant to stay for a few minutes, but my daughter went off in her own direction and my husband went off in his own direction… then I found a whole section of vintage books that are way out of my budget but were soooo nice to look at… hahaha. We were there for awhile. So today I’ve complied a few book store quotes to celebrate reasons we love these places. . (Vegan leather and canvas backpack by @gastonluga . Always 20% off tax rebate for non EU customers, PLUS you can use my code FPDISTILLERY15 for an additional 15% off.) . 📕“I’ve gone to (this bookshop) for years, always finding the one book I wanted—and then three more I hadn’t know I wanted.” —The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society . 📗“I didn’t go to bookshops to buy. That’s a little bourgeois. I went because they were civilized places. It made me happy there were people who sat down and wrote and store and store and there were other people who devoted their lives to making those words into books. It was lovely. Like standing in the middle of civilization.” — Em and The Big Hoom . 📘“The Bookshop has a thousand books, All colors, hues, ad tinges, And every cover is a door, That turns on magic hinges.” —Nancy Byrd Turner . 📙“To my mind there is nothing so beautiful or so provocative as a secondhand book store...To me it is astonishing and miraculous to think that any one of us can poke among the stalls for something to read overnight--and that this something may be the sum of a lifetime of sweat, tears, and genius that some poor, struggling, blessed fellow expended trying to teach us the truth.” ― Lionel Barrymore . 📕“Shelving books incorrectly is as good as stealing them. It's almost worse.” ― I Kill the Mockingbird . 📗“There are actually undiscovered books in tiny bookstore nooks waiting to be discovered. Doesn’t that get you excited?” ― TBV . 📘“You see, bookshops are dreams built of wood and paper. They are time travel and escape and knowledge and power. They are, simply put, the best of places.” The Bookshop Book
