Sunday Salon at Cape Cod




I am packing to leave this glorious special spa by the sea so this is just a short Sunday Salon snippet. I didn't want to miss the fun, and I promise Monday or Tuesday, I will be visiting some of your blogs. As for why I missed my post this week...my very special niece (God daughter) got married. It was a weekend of fun, joy, party time and laughter.

During the day of the wedding, my cousin and I went looking for independent bookstores. He and I have shared our love of books since we were kids. When we were old enough and had gained independence, we would go to NYC and browse all day. What fun!!!

This time, while on the Cape, we stumbled upon a used paperback store called "The Book Rack". This was a relatively small shop, but well marked and the books they had were in very good to near perfect condition. All books were half off the retail price. I picked up 6 new books. Barely worn and not a mark inside. What a treasure. Look at the bottom of this post for a photo of the stack. Yikes!!!! I better stop buying.
My cousin was worse than me. Tee Hee {The Book Nook, 1053 Route 28, S. Yarmouth, MA o2664} So, if you are on the Cape this summer, check it out.



Another place we didn't get to, but looked awesome was in Brewter, a little further down the Cape. It is called The Brewster Book Store. Here is a link to the event page.

Congrats on the new books. I went to the library today and they were selling The Lovely Bones for 50 cents. I quickly snatched it up and another book for $1. I posted a little bit more about my boarding school experience and thought you might be interested. http://poseysessions.blogspot.com/2008/05/i-sendng-you-to-boarding-school.html
The wedding sure sounded like a nice excuse to get away for a bit!

I love the photos! :-D I bet it was beautiful!! Also love how you handled the family drama, go to a bookstore. I know that's not what really happened, but it's what came to mind when reading.

That sounds incredible! I have been thinking about going to a spa with my girlfriend the last weekend in May. I kept leaning away from doing it because it's expensive. "Oh, we can just go do something else special! We don't have to do EVERYTHING!" But you've inspired me to bring it up again and see what I can afford. And if there's a little bookstore nearby, so much the better ;) That sounds like a very happy Sunday Salon! :->
