Lisa | 42 comments Did anyone see the episode of "CBS Sunday Morning" yesterday? They had a story on about this farm in the middle of nowhere in (I think) Wisconsin that the owners are turning into the ultimate used bookstore. 12 of the farm buildings were packed with thousands of books each, the man brings in more new ones than the couple sells because they only open their doors on Saturdays or by appointment. They do it for the simple love of books and reading, they are true Book-a-holics! I sat watching this segment and wishing that I lived anywhere close to this place. Does anyone know of this place or (((sigh)))))has ever been there? It is supposedly a well hidden secret wonder, until now at least.

Jen | 15 comments I did not see it but will try to find some information online. Maybe it's time to plan a trip to a lake and drive by the bookstore on the way???

On another ultimate note, has anyone seen the online photos of the stairs made into a bookshelf?

Angela (blonde_chick120) | 23 comments The stairs are awesome! I love them! The chair however does look really cool, but at the same time it does not look like a very comfy reading chair.

Here's a link to youtube with the Bill Geist Sunday Morning segment about the Wisconsin couple, first mentioned by L.

Impressive.
