If you're a book lover who happens to find yourself traveling down Boston Post Road (Rte. 20) through Sudbury, MA, be sure to stop in at Bearly Read Books.

...and this is where we spent a good chunk of time this past Saturday afternoon. Just look at the cozy reading nook where you can leisurely look through the books before deciding if you want to purchase them or not...

This is my favorite section of the shop... the children's books. Shelves upon shelves of the most incredibly illustrated children's books (my weakness). I found a few beautiful editions of "The Night Before Christmas" to add to my collection, and I'll write more about those come December... but tomorrow I'll share some of the other books I fell in love with (and therefore brought home with me!!!)
"I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves."
I just love that little shops like this still exist (sigh)... They are good for my heart and soul!~
