Wonderful Wordsmiths

Wordsmiths Books is a great independent bookstore in Decatur. It's located in the old post office building and has a white marble, Washingtonian exterior. The inside, however, is very different. In the mid-1990s an architecture firm set up shop inside and turned the building's interior into a stylish and modern office with exposed brick, white walls, original marble and wood flooring and a very open floor plan. Wordsmiths has kept most of the architect firm's work intact, which makes a surprisingly cozy, yet airy bookstore. If I could, I would spend all my free time there.

Hiya Pam,
It was lovely to meet you this weekend too! I hope you enjoyed your 24 hr Atlanta/Decatur stop-over. I wish you were here this weekend to see Wordsmiths on steroids! well, not exactly, but it is the 2nd Annual Decatur Book Festival (50,000 people, 200 authors, mountains of books)-- a book lover's heaven, except for the ATL heat ;)
