The Bookstores of Berkeley: Shakespeare & Co.

As stated in an earlier post, I spent some time up in Berkeley, California, at a conference. I took a short flight up the coast of California and lugged my stuff into the dorm I’d be sharing for my stay and then I was free until the conference started the next day.

On our cab ride in from the airport, I saw something magical. I saw a book store. I wanted to go there, so after grabbing some pizza, I did. It was called Shakespeare & Co.

Of course it was the name that first drew me to this bookstore, but once inside, it was the books that drew me to this book store.

This store had a great collection of used books to choose from, including a section of rare books that I just wanted to touch. So I did.
