It’s time to celebrate another independent bookstore. This one is owned by author Ann Patchett and can be found on Hillsboro Pike in Nashville, Tennessee.

I loved hearing Ann Patchett’s account of the excitement of the bookstore business in her recent memoir. (The Story of A Happy Marriage, review in the April Archives) I planned a visit there first chance that came along. Here we are in Nashville, Tennessee. Come along for a tour.
