The Big 3-0
Congratulations to Brookline, Mass's, Children's Book Shop. They turn 30 this year (you don't look a day over 29) AND they won Boston Magazine's 2007 Best of Boston's Kids Books selection. It's a little place for little people, but they have a lot of choice in over 21,000 books. 21,000 books... imagine.
I love the way the writer for Boston Magazine (who? I don't know) described it: "The shop may be considering a spiffing up for its 30th anniversary this year, but here's hoping it'll always be a tad dog-eared: after all, that's how bookworms mark a place they want to go back to." It's so poetic because it's true.
