Boekenwinkel Buiten

That feeling you get when you’re walking down the street, face down at the pavement, thinking hard enough that the rest of the world falls quiet – you know that one? Then you look up and the thing that’s in front of you actually makes your feet stop in place. Know that one, too?

A bookstore just outside Leiden Centraal Station popped up in the wide open air the other day. It was just before 7pm and the sun was warm. I was too in love with the owner to try bargaining or anything. Plus he was archiving the books intently, kept an old pencil behind his ear, and helped me find a certain author. And, really, books and live music – I’ve never regretted a dollar/euro spent.

Walked away thinking it was a little wink.
