More About The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop by Lewis Buzbee
 
 
 
Overview
In "The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop," a "Book Sense "selection, Lewis Buzbee celebrates the unique experience of the bookstore-the smell and touch of books, the joy of getting lost in the deep canyons of shelves, and the silent community of readers. He shares his passion for books, which began with ordering through the "Weekly Reader "in grade school. Woven throughout is a fascinating historical account of the bookseller trade-from the great Alexandria library to Sylvia Beach's famous Paris bookstore, Shakespeare & Co. Rich with anecdotes, "The Yellow-Lighted Bookshop "is the perfect choice for those who relish the enduring pleasures of spending an afternoon finding just the right book.
