The Book Loft, Columbus, Ohio

The Book Loft is a cool, funky bookstore in the German Village area of Columbus. It's got 32 twisty-turny oddly connected rooms of books, new and used. A very fun place. And Katzinger's Deli is only a few blocks away from it (they have pickels in a barrel, lots of good, huge deli sandwiches, and make me think it's a parallel universe version of Zingerman's Deli in Ann Arbor. But I digress. It was a cold, snowy day—exactly the sort to spend an afternoon in a bookstore. I dragged Stephanie there, since she is a big fan of books, bookstores, and fun, cool bookstores.
