Derby Square Books

I was walking down Essex Street yesterday and when I peered into Derby Square Books and saw the tilt of the front bookshelf, I had to take a picture.

Have you shopped here? It's a most remarkable store. The men who own it know where every book is in the store, and there are clearly a lot of books in the store! It is definitely a unique shopping stop in Salem.

I love going to little book stores. I feel much more comfortable than in a Borders

Yes. This is truly a one-of-a-kind shop. And it's so "Salem." I always thought it amazing that the books don't fall down and even more amazing that the folks who own the shop know where every book is. You must visit if you haven't already.
