One time I was reading Dune on the subway, and a woman pushed her way through the crowd towards me, looked me in the eye, and said that reading this book was what made her decide to go to grad school and become a writer

여행-서점=0 공식 달성을 위해 방문한 #더라스트북스토어 aka 세상에서 가장 아름다운 중고 서점 📚 마치 호그와트를 연상시키는 인테리어와 소품들, 곳곳에 놓인 개성있는 카우치들, 지루할 틈 없이 이어지는 포토 스팟까지 구석구석 눈을 뗄 수가 없네. 그리고 놀라운건 생각보다 꽤 많은 양의 책이 있고 참 다양한 섹션이 존재한다는 것. 코믹존 호러존 해리포터존 비틀즈존 스타워즈존 심지어 장식용 책까지. 다운타운이 해가 져도 무서운 곳이 아니었다면 종일 구경했을지어다. 엘에이에 가면 꼭 들러보시길 😶
I took this photo at @thelastbookstorela on my birthday in 2016. I was turning 29 and TERRIFIED of being so close to 30 (I’m going to be old, I don’t know what I want to do with my life, I haven’t done anything with my life, will I have to invest in a better eye cream? etc.) Then I saw this wonderful woman. She was sitting there for at least two hours and didn’t have a care in the world. She reminded me that life doesn’t have to be so scary and if sitting in a bookstore with a huge pile of books at my side is what the future holds, then sign me up!
Robert Frost wrote, “I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.” After I read that verse for the first time, I was never the same again. Yes, I’ve taken the path less traveled. I’m odd, awkward, and quirky, but I’m me and I’m starting to learn that that’s okay. I brought this gem back from Cali. To top it off, I got it for a steal at @thelastbookstorela. Look at how beautiful the spine is! #bookblogger#instabookbloggers#hawaiianbooknerd 🤓🌺 #booknerdproblems#thelastbookstore
