Ohio Book Store

After lunch with my son and a visit to the Mac Genius Bar at Kenwood Mall, I headed downtown to one of my favorite spots: the Ohio Book Store, "five floors of books," at 726 Main Street in Cincinnati.

Opened in 1940, it is still today a bibliophile's wonderland: used books, old books, new books, hard-to-find books, collectors' editions, first editions, every subject under the sun.

To browse the books on the top floor, you have to turn on the lights yourself. And the bookbinder in the basement does great work: I had my favorite Bible rebound there last year, and I love it.
