Store Description

Books have been one of the major loves of my life so to develop a home online bookshop when my children are all grown and with families that extend our whole family, seemed the natural thing for me to do. My BookShop has many, many selections of all kinds, with emphasis on history, literature, classical works, modern classic fiction,biography and unique books. Also look in my shop for children's books, books about the sciences, art, spirituality, religion--look for whatever you want! I love books and reading and I hope you do too. Your reading enjoyment is my goal.
