Brown County Bookstores

Friday, November 21, 2014

Whenever I travel I tend to find bookstores. A recent trip to Brown County in southern Indiana introduced me to two new ones. The first, Viewpoint Books, was in Columbus, IN. It's a little corner shop with a decent selection. If you find yourself in the area make sure you head all the way to the back to check out the small section of used books! I found a copy of a Steinbeck travel memoir that I hadn't read yet.
The second shop was in downtown Nashville, IN. The town is an adorably sweet tourist spot with tons of little shops. We wandered and did some Christmas shopping for an afternoon.
The best thing about The Book Loft was the excellent selection of antique books by Hoosier authors.  I bought a copy of James Whitcomb Riley's poems from the early 1900s for only $10!
Let me know if there are any great bookstores near you! I'd love to visit them if I'm ever in your area.

I'll have to keep these in mind. I don't remember ever going to these towns, but you never know when you'll breeze through on the way somewhere else.

Yes I love finding indie bookstores when I travel. These look like fun ones.
