The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap


Book #64 Read in 2013
The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap by Wendy Welch

This is a great non-fiction  read.  It tells the story of Jack and Wendy, a married, artsy couple,  who decide to open up a used bookstore in Big Stone Gap, an Appalachian coal town.  The book honestly details the struggles of opening the bookstore, keeping it afloat, building a customer base and being allowed into the inner circles of the town.  The writing style is great in that the book reads like fiction and the townspeople/characters are vividly described in wonderful detail.  They are quite the crew.  I very much enjoyed this book.
