Carpe Librum


Flossie and the gracious staff of Carpe Librum received us Friday evening with open arms, even talking us through one story after another via the speaker phone right up to their door. What a beautiful place to browse and buy! Hours of any word lover’s day would be well spent discovering the hand selected titles awaiting you here.

(Just in case you are wondering Flossie is holding one of the book bag giveways from Literary Threads.)
This sweet reader bought a book for herself and one for “her favorite Yankee”, posed for us, and headed off to support her local community theater. You have to love that!
Readers, Carpe Librum awaits you with a great - and WE Do Mean GREAT reading area with art, sofa,  and chairs, waiting for you to have a sit down and fall in love with words all over again. If you are anywhere near the Knoxville area, or even just passing through, this store is just a drop off interstate 40 and well worth your time to sidetrack on a business or vacation trip. 
Our hosts for the evening, Jack and Faye Bryant, could not be more hospitable. We type these words from their guest rooms where every consideration has obviously been given to what we might want or need during our scant hours at their home. Talk about being humbled!
A shot of our “comfy socks” and lotion so thoughtfully left at our bedsides. Thanks, Faye! We could get used to this, right River?
It’s late, y’all—and tomorrow is another day, so we’ll bid adieu and hope to see you at noon tomorrow in Ellijay, GA at Cowan’s Book Nook!
Keep reading and keep believing,
River and Shellie
