Whenever and wherever I travel, I'm always on the lookout for a good used book store. Bookstores are one of the best places to be, and books are a favourite travel memento of mine. I write the year and city of purchase on the inside cover, and they serve as great reminders of the places I've been.
So when Chris and I were in Chicago back in April, I knew I had to stop by Myopic Books in Bucktown. Stacked high with books of all sorts and brimming with character, it was lovely place to wile away an afternoon.
