Bookstore Spotlight is a new feature featuring local, mostly independent bookstores. I was surprised to realize just how many good indie stores we have here in Michigan. I easily thought of five right off the bat, and there are more throughout the state. I'll be including pics so read on and enjoy. And if you have any ideas for a good bookstore to spotlight- feel free to let me know, or share it yourself!
Vault of Midnight is the coolest comic store I've been in. They've been around Ann Arbor, Michigan for years and I was thinking of doing a feature - so when I saw that they had opened a store in my town I about fell off my chair. Of course I had to immediately check 'em out, so we loaded the kids in the car and went down there to see what's what. They 're downtown in a very happening area- I think this is the start of a beautiful friendship. :)
The first thing about VoM is- it's large. And clean. And the staff are friendly. There was a vampire on duty the time we visited, and she cheerfully took pics with the kids. What's not to like? They have all the new comics you could want- a full wall going all the way back, plus shelves of all the comics, graphic novels and toys you can imagine. It's just a total destination if you like any of this kind of stuff.
