What a great article! Books can take us to many faraway and exotic places, and referring to the bookstore owner as a "travel agent" was an excellent metaphor. It made me think of our small town bookstore, also home to a couple of rescued animals. As Hemingway said, "One cat leads to another." The same can be said of books. Keep reading and keep writing! Good job!

Nicely written--an experience that all devout readers share, and expressed well and with originality.

I loved this exotic tour of the world through the eyes of a bifocaled writer! It made sense to me, something I hadn't thought of before - about the difference between a documentary on TV and delving into a book having to use your five senses. Very, very good! And writing was super...
Enjoyed the concept here. I too liked it when you refered to reading as a place to participate and not just to observe.

I'm with you - there's just something about reading a good book... I also visit a bookstore like you describe everytime we pass through Montana!
