After a 2.5 hour drive from New York City to Madison, CT to provide a Feng Shui Consultation, I decided to explore the town a bit more and found a lovely gem called, " R.J. Julia Bookstore." Talk about great Feng Shui energy -- this store has it!! It was one of the first stores on the stripe that captured my attention and I entered immediately. And yes, I fell in love, and yes I read some books and yes I ate ate there cafe!! What a perfect way to end the day.
This bookstore was bustling with so much activity. The photos I captures were of paused moments as this bookstore extends back and up.
Taking a closer look at the walls, you see hundreds of famous authors, celebrities, political, local and sports figures who have paid a visit to this independently owned bookstore for book signings or just to visit.
I spent at least 1.5 hours just browsing, reading and once my intellectual side was satisfied, I grabbed a small bite to eat at their in-house cafe. This photo does not do the cafe justice (sorry about that). I will say, the food, artwork along the walls, and service were all 5 star.
If you are every passing by or are stopping by, you NEED to meet up at R.J. Juila Bookstore in Madison, CT. The bookstore has been here for 27 years! and going strong.
