Storyteller's Journey

Spring Break in the Southwest

It had been too long since I visited my parents here in Arizona; I decided I would fly down and visit them while my husband attends an oil painting workshop in our hometown.

Yesterday my Mom and I had lunch in the Old Town part of Scottsdale. I had an ulterior motive for visiting that part of the Phoenix metro area - I wanted to check out The Poisoned Pen Bookstore! It did not disappoint. While its specialties are mysteries and Southwest literature, it did not lack for a wide selection of books by various local authors.
I was overdue for a bit of rest and relaxation; unfortunately, I'll be leaving the Valley of the Sun soon.

Do you have a favorite independent bookstore in your community?


  1. There's nothing like a few hours spent at a local book store! Sounded like a fun time.

  2. *Sigh* I could use a vacation like that... Thanks for sharing, Victoria. :)

  3. I'm so glad your having a great time Dear!
