From Sarah C., another book haunt:
During a recent trek into Raleigh, D and I stopped by Quail Ridge Books. It’s a well known independent book store located in Ridgewood Shopping Center off Wade Avenue just inside of I-440. The store hosts regular events including readings and book signings.
Our plan for visiting was simply to stop in and browse the Children’s section. D loves books and had some Christmas money so I thought it would be a great place to search out a new title or two for our personal library. The Children’s Section is tucked into the back left corner. It’s a very cheery room with bright yellow walls and shelves overflowing with books. We quickly located a good selection of board books and began our search. I’m betting if there is a book you are looking for, you will find it in this store. We were quite pleased to stumble across a Curious George board book that D didn’t already own (we have a slight obsession with him at the moment and I prefer board books to avoid torn pages for now) and we hadn’t seen at any other stores we have visited. True, we could have ordered it online, but I love book shopping in person and supporting our local businesses.
The staff is extremely friendly and helpful. Be sure to ask if you can’t find the book you want.
