Little Shop of Stories


Decatur is one of the cutest towns in Georgia. It has unique shops, friendly people, and is home to Little Shop of Stories. Oh, how I want to visit this charming and friendly bookshop every single week. The bookshop's staff, ambience, and top-notch collection brought the biggest smile to my face. I wanted to create an enormous book stack and hide in a corner for a week. Thank you, Laurel Snyder, Eric Wight, and Jarrett J. Krosoczka, for introducing me to one of America's best independent bookshops. I hope to return one day for the Decatur Book Festival.
