Fish Who Answer the Telephone…

Little bookshops make my heart skip a beat, in a really good, romantic and goose-bumpy way.  The problem is there aren’t that many mom & pop bookshops around anymore.  Between the big box stores, internet mail order and eBooks, commerce and technology have done away with the dusty shelves and lovely scent of musty “vanilla-ish” paper in the air.  By the way, this distinct aged paper smell was actually analyzed by scientists and found to be the result of hundreds […]
