Just the other day Eleanor Upchurch and I were on Facebook commenting about how much we miss Capitol Book and News. But (as the adage goes) when one door closes another opens. As I am sure all you cool people now know, a new bookstore is opening at New South Books. While the bookstore is […]

Well, that groundhog was not kidding, and although we have been spared the snow and ice (I do hope I am not jinxing us), we in the Deep South are not comfortable with these cold days and nights. What better way to spend a cold, dark night than to hunker down with a good book? […]

It’s All About the Books

It’s All About the Books

It’s almost spring! It’s almost spring! The Bradford pears are spreading lacy blossoms on sidewalks. Cheery daffodils wave from flower beds, and redbuds splash their color here and there. People, dogs, and children in strollers are out in the sunshine. Spring in Montgomery is a glorious thing. In addition to flowers, balmy breezes, and light […]

Take One, Leave One!

Just when I get bored with the world around me… I’m driving down South Hull Street through the Garden District and spot the oddest little cottage sitting on top of a post near the street. I pulled over to examine this awesome mailbox while wondering what kind of mail these folks get to warrant such […]

Capitol Book and News is one of Midtown’s most notable and beloved fixtures. Tucked into a cottage at 1140 E. Fairview, it is one of the very best bookstores not just in Alabama, but in the South. You can always find what you want there, plus a few things you forgot you wanted, plus a […]

March is coming to a close, and, if I remember right, it will go out like a lamb and bring some great spring weather. April is always a busy month and two events get Midtown’s eventful spring off to a good start. Check your calendar for Thursday, April 7th, and mark the date for “The […]

Our Public Library

Our Public Library

When we went to the Alabama Book Festival last month we spent some time talking to a librarian in Montgomery’s City-County public library system. She was so persuasive talking to us about the resources available through the library that we turned to each other and said: “Okay, we’ve got to get library cards.” That we […]
