If heaven is a bookstore, then…

…this is the place.

It’s the John K. King Used and Rare Books store, located at 901 W. Lafayette Blvd, Detroit, MI.

The store suggests the place has one million books, but I’d be willing to bet there’s more.

Yes, as the picture above suggests, there are four stuffed floors of books. All of them are used, and, yes, some of them are rare. I walked in looking for one type of book, but I ended up roaming three floors and I must have looked like the kid in the proverbial candy store as I did.

I found an employee on each floor who was quickly able to point me toward particular subjects I was seeking. After that, I was left alone to browse.

If you love books, go. And don’t be in a hurry!
