Small Local Bookshops: The Adirondack Reader
One of the places I love to go in Inlet is the Adirondack Reader bookshop. It is a small, friendly, local place; the kind of place where they remember your name and what books you like. Reggie Chambers owns and runs the shop. Of course, it has a much more limited inventory than Amazon or Borders, but it has charm, character; it's like a cozy living room where you can sit and read or browse and visit with friends. The shop carries a good selection of children's books and Adirondack design and history, as well as fiction and gifts. I think it is my favorite store in Inlet. There aren't many stores, it's true, but this one is worth a visit.
