Growing up, I had a dream that one day I’d have my own personal library. Not just a personal library, but a large one with floor to ceiling shelves, and a ladder to get me to the top! Like Belle from Beauty & the Beast.
After school on Fridays, I was the kid that ran to the library to check out as many books that were allowed for weekend reading. I believe we were allowed 3 or 4 but it wasn’t nearly enough.
In 2010, we opened our indie used bookstore J’aime Les Livres ( I Love Books — that’s simply what it means ). The name can be confusing and possibly intimidating to some who have never taken a course in French; I hope that hasn’t kept you away!
I truly believe that literacy is important for all…you’ve heard it before: if you’re a reader you’re a leader, a better writer, and even a better speaker.
Now We’re on a mission to SAVE ALL THE BOOKS!
Our gently pre-loved books need a home. Let’s do our earthly part and reduce, reuse, and recycle!
We believe in the magic of books! How they make us feel, how they help us heal, and how they even help us interact with others. Believe in the magic, join us on this journey and subscribe today!
