A Special Place

Many thanks to Metro Pulse and Chris Barrett for the great story about Carpe Librum ["Thinking Outside the Big Box," July 16, 2009]. Carpe Librum is truly a special place. It's the only bookstore in the area where one can simply describe a book she's heard of, and the owners and staff will know what she's talking about. They know their inventory, they stay abreast of new releases, and, if they don't have a book in stock, they usually can order it and get it to you within a week. Best of all, they are friends to their customers. It's quite simply the best bookstore I know.
