The CoffeeBook House

IMG_3086

This weekend I found a quaint used books store and coffee house. It has all the comforts of a cozy bookshop with the great aroma of coffee. Bringing in a used book equals a free coffee, and all the books can be read at the shop or purchased for a fair price. It is the perfect retreat for cold and dreary days. I think I shall work here one day.
