In a world that’s dauntingly overrun with apps, video-enhanaced glasses, mobile-fitness monitors, e-readers, and more, sometimes it’s refreshing to take a stroll into a bookstore and get back to the basics. Digital detox, anyone? Whether it’s our penchant for page turning or the shop's comforting library smell, cult-followed Book/Shop is our literary oasis in the heart of the East Bay.
We love it so much, we tapped shop gal (and blogger) Meaghan Murphy to show us around. The curly-haired bookworm modeled four outfits that are just as sleek and streamlined as the store itself. So, get ready to meet this culture curator and get the scoop on her must-reads right now. Let’s book it, shall we?
