The Saturday Morning Blogger – Burrowing Owl Books on the Square in Canyon
For anyone who has not yet discovered the Burrowing Owl Bookstore on the east side of the square in Canyon, it is a shop worth visiting. Dallas and Todd Bell own the store, but Todd’s duties as a medical doctor ensure than most of the office hours at Burrowing Owl are kept by Dallas – and her mother and daughters.
They have an eclectic variety of new and used books. For the kids, the doors of a wardrobe open to provide entrance to the kids’ books section. My 12-year-old granddaughter and I have already explored it a few times and made purchases there.
The shelves are arranged to make browsing easy, but if you know exactly what you want, odds are good that Dallas can take you right to it. They even take trade-in on your used books with credit toward purchases of other used books.
It reminds me in many ways of the “Shop around the corner” from “You’ve Got Mail.”
With a new snap of cooler weather, it’s a great place to pick up a book for reading in front of your fireplace!
Keep reading! It gives you great ideas for your own great American novel.
