I love to read. As my mother tells the story – I used to spend a lot of time in my room and books were my only friends. I think there might be some truth to that…but that’s a different story. During this past 4th of July I was lucky enough to be able to visit my family on Martha’s Vineyard. We’ve been there before – and while the island was gorgeous and getting to spend time with family was awesome – one of the key highlights was getting to talk to the owner of Riley Reads.
Riley Reads is a small children’s book store on the island. Zoe – the owner is a former nanny and book lover who loves to find just the right book for everybody who walks through her doors. The store is a fantasy land for book lovers. Bright colors with books everywhere. Nooks and crannies where kids can curl up with a book, cushions and pillows scattered on the floor for the younger set to drop onto with a book of their choice.
I got to talk with Zoe while I was there and her enthusiasm for books was undeniable. She was able to give me some good tips on books that I can share with my daughters over the next few years. If you’re ever in the Martha’s Vineyard area – be sure to check out the store!
Although Zoe is an expert at finding the right books (just give her a call or shoot her a note (firstname.lastname@example.org) and ask her to create a gift basket for you and you’ll see what I mean) – she’s new to blogging. So stop by her blog and give her some love – and while you’re at it – check out her Facebook page – because if you love to read – you’ll love Riley’s Reads!
If you’re ever in the Martha’s Vineyard area – be sure to check out the store!
Note: This post was not compensated in any way – I simply love the store, loved talking with Zoe and love to read – so I wanted to be sure to share it with all of you!
