A visit to Parnassus Books, co-owned by author Ann Patchett, who pre-signed all copies of her books for sale. I’ve previously read Bel Canto and Truth and Beauty and am excited to add State of Wonder to this list. This was a wonderful, independent bookstore, complete with a store dog, and is definitely worth a visit while in Nashville!

Thus ends our summer travels and I relish the comfort of nesting at home as the beginning of the fall semester draws ever nearer.
