Unconventional Bookstores

Flavorwire recently put out a list of "10 Unconventional Bookstores For Your Browsing Pleasure." Indeed.
     I especially like The Book Barge, which just parks along the canals in the UK (mostly in Staffordshire) and opens its doors. I wonder if they set loose while customers are inside? At 4 miles per hour, how long would you be able to read before you'd be lost?
     The other one that caught my eye is in called "Kid's Republic Picture Book Store" in China. Is it a playground? Is it a bookstore? Is it a place that makes it fun to read? You betcha. (I wish my house looked like this!)
Thanks to PW Daily for the heads up.

We need places like that for our kids.

I hope you are recovering well from your surgery. Shortly after my son broke his arm from climbing out of his crib, I re-wrote "Mary Had a Little Lamb" for him. As he is now running around full-speed ahead (me at about 1/2 to 3/4 speed), his story does have a happy ending.

Thomas has a purple cast,
A purple cast,
A purple cast.
Thomas has a purple cast
And a broken wrist

He climbed out of his crib one day
Crib one day
Crib one day.
He climbed out of his crib one day
And landed on the floor

So now he has a big boy bed
Big boy bed
Big boy bed
So now he has a big boy bed
Of which he can slip out

Even with his purple cast
His purple cast
His purple cast
Even with his purple cast
He still climbs out of bed.
