Biblio-Adventure: Toadstool Bookshop, New Hampshire
Yesterday I made a pilgrimage to Jaffrey, NH to visit the graves of Willa Cather and her life-long partner Edith Lewis. The last time I visited, in 2014, there was snow up to my thighs in some areas. I wanted to avoid that to be able to see more of the old headstones and so squeezed in a drive yesterday. It was a gorgeous fall day — the leaves are dazzling now in southern New Hampshire — and the rain held off until I left the cemetery.
I asked Lory of The Emerald City Book Review for bookish recommendations in the area and she suggested Toadstool Bookshop in Peterborough. Without delay, that’s were I headed after paying my respects.
Thanks to Lory for recommending I visit Toadstool! They have two other locations in New Hampshire (in Keene and Milford) that I definitely hope to visit soon. Check them out: toadbooks.com.
I’d love to hear what some of your favorite childhood reads are.
