My weekly favorite is a small hidden gem here in Rochester, New York…Rick’s Recycled Books. I have been going to this bookstore for years and always walk out with a stack even though I have several unread ones at home! Bookstores are my weakness…especially used bookstores.
I have to admit my boyfriend planned our weekend and surprised me with a visit to Rick’s…yes, he is pretty amazing! This isn’t a place to sit on your laptop and sip your coffee, but it is a lovely hole in the wall, bursting with an assortment of books begging to be chosen. Most are $1-$4 and even though it looks like chaos he has a method to the madness. I think of it as the House of Guitars for books.
On this trip my boyfriend was able to find a couple books he wanted to read, and then realized one is autographed!
If you are looking for something to do make a stop at this lovely treasure on Monroe Ave.
