And On to Atlanta!

"We don't mean to brag (ok, maybe we do but just a bit) but we are the premiere bookseller for children in the Atlanta area."

What a pleasure it is to introduce the Little Shop of Stories in Atlanta, Georgia. We have our reader SamMiddleBurger to thank for waving a flare for us on this one. The Little Shop opened in 2005, and offers a strong selection in children's and young adult literature, poetry, and non-fiction, as well as a unique, handpicked, collection of adult fiction and non-fiction. Store "mothers", Diane and Lynne, have done a bang-up job in just three year's time of bringing stellar programming and events to their store.

And, the Little Shop of Stories has spawned the Little Blog of Stories, which is big fun. "We love kids and we love books for kids. We love it when kids write reviews of books for us 'cause then we don't have to work so hard."

And here is where you can find them, next time you're in Atlanta!
Little Shop of Stories
515 North McDonough Street
Decatur, GA 30030


Let's give it up for them, shall we? Hoooo-RAH!
Back soon, friends--

What a FABULOUS website! I love the paper bag motif on their site -- and the Little Blog of Stories is really cool, too, and ties in nicely with their 'What We're Reading' list. These people put a lot of work into their ONLINE presence; I imagine the shop must knock your socks off!

Yaaaay Little Shop of Books!

What a great name for a bookstore! My mom and I are planning a road trip through the south and I'll make sure we include Little Shop of Stories in our travels.
