When I first poked my head into the Voracious Reader, it made me wish I was a child again. Being a book maven, this is a place I would have called my home away from home! Today when I look at thoughtfully laid out store like this with all its nooks and crannies – I can only smile and say there IS a viable anti-big-box book store model out there! The store even brought to mind “The Shop Around the Corner” that Meg Ryan ran in You’ve Got Mail.
They have first books for toddlers, books for new readers, and plenty of selection through the teen years. I noticed of a Star Wars corner – a nook with Winnie the Pooh and of course the Harry Potter series.
As if that wasn’t enough – the Voracious Reader has expanded to include a tea house (A Proper Cup) that serves a variety of teas, lemonade with mint and cold drip coffee – which is excellent. There are also cupcakes, cookies and pastries including a selection that is gluten-free.
This is one of the reason that Larchmont homes are so popular. The type of community that surrounds the area encourages small business with a unique perspective to flourish even in our big-box world which many think dominate suburbia.
Here are several of the regularly scheduled events at the Voracious Reader:
