|Come on in!|
|There she is!|
I spent Saturday afternoon hanging out at The Golden Bough in Macon, GA. Located in the downtown area, The Golden Bough is a vintage bookstore that also offers new releases, and provides a venue for local music and literary events.
I came prepared to solve mysteries, bearing tarot cards and Krispy Kreme donuts, but alas, no mysteries presented themselves. I thought for a second we had one when I couldn't locate my daughter -- but that was only a mystery for about two seconds. I found her in the stack, reading (see above). Of course.
Or hanging out with China, the owner's greyhound. That's the pair of them, to the right. Nothing like a book and a big, soft dog to make an afternoon perfect.
The Golden Bough is one of my favorite hangouts when I'm visiting Macon. Lush with personality -- and slam chock-full of books -- it's the kind of bookstore that has developed organically, with roots and branches.

|Heaven? The Golden Bough, actually. Which may be the same thing.|

|Lookit! I know those books!|
