    Those leather bound HP books are gorgeous! I’ll have to check out the 73 best kid’s books. I enjoy them and the Tornado and I are reading chapter books at bedtime and I’m always looking for new books! That’s great about the 60 new Indie bookstores! I’m not entirely surprised. I feel like there’s a growing movement for smaller and more personal versus just bigger and faster.
