If you are looking for a used book you’ll probably find it at Meritxell Books on Broadway in Nakusp. The store is filled to the roof with shelves of books catering to all interests.
Owner and self-confessed “bookworm,” Wes Towle opened the shop in 1991. It is one of the longest running businesses that has come through the Community Futures door.
In this day of e-readers and e-books, it is still nice to go to the bookstore, buy a book, crack it open and delve into a good mystery, romance novel or science fiction thriller. There is just a certain satisfaction from holding a book and turning its pages.
Check out Meritxell Books the next time you are downtown Nakusp, you’ll find a good read!
