"Raymond’s eye for telling detail is very fine, as one expects of an accomplished writer, but to this she adds the informing eye of a natural historian of place.”

Bookstore geek: Rogue Books

I stumbled across this little gem in Ashland, Oregon, one afternoon while walking through the Railroad District — it’s a little hidden away in what used to be a gas station/garage. As you can see, the building hasn’t changed; it still reads “Haskins Garage” and the old gas pump still stands right outside.

Inside is a wonderful, eclectic selection of used books, signs, license plates — it’s like a museum, not only for its selection but for the building itself; it’s still got the wide-open space and the high ceilings.

 

Perhaps best of all is that when you visit Rogue Books, you’ll find that you’re right across the street from Noble Coffee, another neighborhood treasure.

Happy reading/shopping!
