Second Read Books

Friday, June 26, 2015

 I love St. Augustine, Florida. It's the oldest city in the United States. This year it celebrated its 450th anniversary! Every time we visit we wander the cobblestone streets and find new little shops to stop explore. On our trip to Florida in May we found Second Read Books and just had to stop in. 

The Huz and I spent a little time in the tiny shop and I found a gorgeous 1960 edition of Jane Eyre that I bought. I have a slight problem with buying different copies of Jane Eyre. I just can't help myself. I'm not a fan of the silly editions with damsels in distress on the cover, but I can't pass up a gothic version like this.

Side note: If you ever find yourself in St. Augustine I would highly recommend the restaurant Catch 27. It is amazing! Take your own bottle of wine (no corking fee) and get the blackened fish, you'll thank me later.

ha! AND I Recommend The Conch House restaurant in St. Augustine - best key lime pie I've ever had. I have a favorite necklace that I purchased in the old shoppes area. One of my favorite vacation spots.

bkclubcare - We'll have to try that next time. I love key lime pie! My favorite necklace is from a shop there too! I wonder if it's the same one.

Okay so that's not far from Jacksonville right? I recall it being the oldest in U.S. Thanks for the tips
