ahem. sorry. And it had been a good time! We deliberately arrived early at Iowa City to be able to walk around a bit. Why? Oh.... I dunno...maybe because 3 of my favorite bookstores happen to be here in the city and several others that are great stores too, just not quite as kitschy.
This is where I simply sighed with delight to get to be back in. Prairie Lights. One of the most renowned indie bookstores in the Midwest... or anywhere for that matter!! These are bookish-folk at their bookish best!
I picked up this little gem...
although I had to make two trips in and then my daughter ended up finding it. I wouldn't ask because I wasn't sure of the name and I didn't know who wrote it, but...yea it happens to me too... I just LOVE this cover!! :)
It wouldn't be a trip to Iowa City without a shout out to the store that stole my heart though...
If I don't make it there this trip I certainly will spend some quality time there when I'm back in July for Iowa City Book Festival
Just don't ask about my hotel... some things are better left forgotten
