Supporting Truckee’s independent bookstore.   Leave a comment

 

 

Ah the bookstore! They are certainly wonderful places to browse for books, but they are also an intellectual place of refuge, and on one of our rare rainy days, a great escape. But unfortunately, bookstores have become rare gems, we only have one left in the North Tahoe-Truckee area (and a few good ones in nearby Reno).  While The Bookshelf closed it’s Tahoe City operation last year, it has moved it’s Truckee store to just a few doors down from Wild Cherries. There you can still thumb through the latest best seller, or get some staff tips on books to read, but perhaps most importantly, you can pick up a copy of one of our regional titles. Need a guidebook to the local hiking trails, or a tome on the colorful history of our area? The bookshelf will have that. And you might just have the opportunity to meet the author at a book signing or slide presentation at the store as well.

 

If this bookstore, is to remain a vibrant part of Truckee, however, we not only have to enjoy their great ambiance, but on the way out the door must actually pull out our credit cards and buy books. Supporting our local bookstores provides a win-win-win situation. We get to have a bookstore in Truckee to wander through, we sustain a local small business and it’s employees, and we support a community of local writers who produce the reading material that helps us better understand our beautiful little corner of the world. So next time you hit Wild Cherries for your afternoon cup of Joe, pick up something to read first.
