Queen Anne Book Company
Towards the end of January rumors began to circulate that some of the employees of the old bookstore were banding together to open a new one. A countdown appeared on the paper covered doors - changing every day - to the elation of the community, with conversations about the new bookstore popping up at the coffee shop, the bank, the grocery store. I may live in Seattle, but Queen Anne is very much it's own neighborhood, like a little town in the heart of the big city and this was big news.
Yesterday, Queen Anne Book Company opened its doors for the first time! When we arrived yesterday evening it was packed inside. I should have snapped the picture then, as opposed to when we left some time later. In this age of Amazon and Barnes & Noble, it was great seeing the community support for a small, independent bookstore.
Welcome to the neighborhood!
