Burlingham Books

Ann Burlingham recently posted this nice photo of her bookstore:

That’s Burlingham Books in the small town of Perry NY (2 South Main St. 14530), not far from Rochester, within striking distance of Buffalo.

From the store’s website:

Welcome to the Burlingham Books website. Browse the site – you’ll find more books than we can possibly carry in the store! Order through the website for either home delivery or in-store pick-up (of course we’re always happy to hear from you in person or by phone, too). Check out the local and store events: there’s always a lot happening in Burlingham Books, and all around Perry, too.

Named “Most Promising New Business” of 2007 by the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce, Burlingham Books is the largest bookstore in a five-county area. We’re a quirky independent bookstore with a unique selection of new and used books, gifts, and magazines, as well as an espresso bar, free wi-fi, and a knowledgeable, friendly staff.

The driving force here is Ann, with her long experience as a librarian and bookseller. (And she grew up in Perry.)

For some time, Ann was Jacques’s and my housemate. (J. and I shared a big house in Columbus OH with a number of friends over the years.)
