When book lovers around the country celebrated Independent Bookstore Day, it got us thinking: What are our favorite bookstores?
The Buckley School staff, to a person, are avid readers. We’re all huge fans of Camden’s delightful bookstore, Books on Broad.
But all of us have other favorites, most of them places we’ve discovered as we travel. Over the next few weeks, we’ll publish the lists we’ve made--so that you can share in our joy of all things book.
To kick it off, we’re turning to George Mirabal. George manages video production at The Buckley School and is a founding member of the South Carolina Shakespeare Company.
His favorite bookstores, fittingly, can all be found in London. Here they are, with his trademark to-the-point comments:
“May be touristy, but there is a reason—ambience”
“On a barge. Enough said.”
“Like a museum where you can touch stuff and buy it.”
“My absolute favorite. Under the Waterloo Bridge, and like everything Southwark, it’s just cool.”
Got a favorite bookstore (or three)? We'd love to hear about them. Email us your list!
