Thank you for the tag @Nute
@TheSpineView

1. I've always wanted to visit Shakespeare and Company in Paris, The Last Bookstore in LA and John K. King in Detroit.

2. I usually never have a list. Sometimes I do go with one book in mind and accidentally walk out with more 🤣💕

TheSpineView Accidentally?!?😂 You sound like me! Thanks for playing! 3mo
Nute I can‘t believe that I failed to mention Shakespeare and Co. That bookstore makes my list as well! There are so many that I would like to visit .🙂 3mo

I definitely enjoyed the different perspectives on the Trojan War, especially coming from an all female point of view. I always thought about Odysseus' poor wife having to wait over 20 years for her husband to return to her and how awful that must have been. 3.5/5 stars 🥰

I was able to enjoy running around the bookstore, grabbing armfulls of books with my littles in tow. I also might have run around snapping pictures of books I needed to add to my TBR list 😅. Don't mind the crazy lady dashing around, I have been at home far too long and it was like being let out into the wild.
