Ahh, springtime. Can you smell it? Yes, smell. It’s an amazing and exciting time that fills me with joy despite the extra tissue I have to carry around for sneezing.
And there’s nothing better than an academic town teeming with outdoor activity as the layers of clothing and snow and ice are falling away.
I drove up to Princeton recently and took advantage of the local restaurants, shops, and sunshine.
Of course, a new town means a new bookstore for my project. Enter Labyrinth Books.
How could you not be intrigued by a name like that? I had grand visions of walking in and having all the glorious knowledge of an ivy-league scholar fill my senses and drive my thoughts to profound places. That obviously didn’t happen, but I did get a feeling of schoolgirl giddiness from being in a really cool bookstore.
They even had a Writing Style & Publishing section. Win!
I did a few rounds through the store examining the shelves and tables. The lower level houses an area where readings are held and where students can buy textbooks. There was a sidewalk sale, too, celebrating the sunny weather.
