Used Books

Yes Books is a used bookstore at Congress Square. It's really bigger than it looks like from the outside. It's deep with loaded shelves. These shops are wonderful hangouts on rainy days.

A Book
There is no frigate like a book
To take us lands away,
Nor any coursers like a page
Of prancing poetry.
This traverse may the poorest take
Without oppress of toll;
How frugal is the chariot
That bears a human soul!

Emily Dickinson


  1. I lose track of time in these used book stores and have a hard time passing up the good deals! The flyers also make for good reading -- helps you get a "flavor" for the community.

  2. I have one of these right next to my favourite cinema, and WITH a coffee shop!

    I thoroughly enjoy reciting Dickinson out loud and trying to make it rhyme!!

  3. I love these places. I can spend all day in there.

  4. Have to love as place like this. I'm reading The Road at the moment.
