Branches Books – Oakhurst

Art - for Branches Books blog

It’s with pleasure that I’ll be signing books at the Oakhurst “Junction Plaza” shop of Branches Books and Gifts. I believe all book stores need a boost. Anything I can do to help promote these business places, by reaching out to readers, followers, and friends seems an important thing. I know that one cannot always give a gift of books, because sometimes it is such a personal thing – to know what another enjoys reading.
Here’s a question. Do you find book shops romantic? Like the one in the movie Notting Hill? When I was last in London I never went to that neighborhood, but was near there several times at Paddington Station, Holland Park, and Kensington High Street. But, I’ve been in several bookstores like that. One was in Berkeley, south of Bancroft and west of College Avenue, on a corner, across from the Forum coffee house. Another was on Piedmont in Oakland. Another was in Clovis, Yes, the Book Barn.
Anyway, I’ll be at the Branches Books this Wednesday, August 13, at 5:30.
Anne Driscoll is the owner and the website is:

See if you think this shop is as romantic as Notting Hill.
