Literary Pilgrimage

Literary Pilgrimage

“Outside of a dog, a book is man’s best friend. Inside of a dog it’s too dark to read.” ― Groucho Marx

Oh, Groucho…

But seriously folks, a few weeks ago we went on our regular literary pilgrimage to the Bookmill in Montague, MA.  The fall is really a fantastic time to visit this 1842 gristmill, set on the banks of the Sawmill River, which has been converted into a book store/music store/cafe.  Wander through the nooks and crannies, find a comfy chair, and read for hours.  When you’re thirsty, wander over the Lady Killgrew Cafe for a panini and a pint.  Perfection!

Their tag line is: “Books you don’t need in a place you can’t find” and it is so true!  We definitely bought a few books and records which we didn’t need but will love just the same.

I found (but did not buy) this fantastic garden book with pages of tiles and plants and fountains…
