Summer is a great time to sit down and catch up on a good book. Reading is one of our personal favorite types of self-care, because books allow you to escape from your troubles, worries or stressors (and even the heat), if only for a brief time. Also, this reading is a versatile self care tool. You can take a book with you on your beach trip, when you take your dog to the dog park, while you are waiting to see a doctor, or relaxing in the bath tub. Reading can truly be a great escape!
This month, we are proud to spot light Main Street Books in our community. Main Street Books is located on Main Street in the historical and quaint downtown Davidson, NC. It is a great place to explore the latest and greatest books, as they have highlights and suggestions for almost every genre. Main Street books has friendly and helpful staff who can help suggest books, based on your interest. One of our favorite features they offer is a "blind date with a book," which is a bookshelf of wrapped books with hints of what the book entails. This is a fun way to read a book you may not have picked otherwise.
Main Street Books also hosts interactive events for all ages. On Wednesdays, from 10am to 10:30am they have story time for children. Meet up with other parents and children in your community while listening to a fun story. For teens and youth, Main Street Books offers an advisory board group for teens that meets and reviews new books, which is an excellent way for book-loving teens to be proactive in their community. On the third Tuesday of each month, an open book club meets at 7pm. The group explores a variety of literature throughout the year. But wait, there is more! Check out their event calendar to see if any of your favorite authors are scheduled to come for a book signing or meet and greet, or for a live music event.
So, next time you are visiting Main Street in Davidson, we encourage you to stop by Main Street Books, pick a book for yourself and your children, or even join them for one of their fun events. As bookworms ourselves, we would love to know what you are reading, so bring it in to the office and tell us all about it.
