South Dakota: Prairie Pages

You guys I REALLY liked Prairie Pages in South Dakota, and the owner Peggy was an absolute delight! Pierre, SD is very small, but any place that has a bookstore like this, with an owner who is clearly passionate about books and the people who buy and sell books, cannot be a bad place.

I really can’t say enough how much I enjoyed visiting this bookstore and hearing about the effort that goes into running this store. And I don’t just mean the hard work, because yes, running a bookstore is HARD work, but I mean the extra effort things like giving employees a chance to attend national or regional book conferences.  When you go into a store that has booksellers excited about books, you can’t help but leave with a book you’re excited about, too.

P.S. -- Don’t forget to notice the stuffed buffalo in the children’s section!
