The Insiders: Go judge this bookstore by its cover. And its insides.
Today, fair readers, we are giving you the directive to wander. Not blindly, of course. You’ll want to avoid exposed manhole covers and the on ramps to the highway. No, we think you’d enjoy wandering through the brand new Gibson’s Bookstore at 45 S. Main St., which celebrated a ribbon cutting ceremony yesterday and is officially open for business. If you were a fan of the old Gibson’s, and frankly how could you not be, you’ll be blown away by the new space. Not literally, though – the updated digs did include more square footage, but sadly not a wind machine. The store is comfortable and massive and laid out in a browser-friendly manner, and even includes a used book section. It’s everything you could want in a friendly, local bookstore. Well, everything except a wind machine.
Go down and check it out for yourself – you’ll be glad you did. Bonus offer: tell them The Insiders sent you and receive 0 percent off your day’s purchase! What a bargain!
