I was very fortunate to hear about this bookstore from a family friend and I enjoyed my time there immensely. The store is laid out with passion and the book selection is varied and fun. The owner obviously loves books and her neighborhood in Armada, where she is very active.

I had the good fortune to find this bookstore in Kansas City a few weeks ago while visiting my brother and his wife. Three stories with an excellent selection of used and new books. Plenty of space in the top floor while the basement housed many unique art installations as well as some really cool old telephones.

Read It Again Books has been a mainstay in Novi Michigan for nearly twenty years. I was happy to find that the owner and staff were warm and open people who graciously allowed me to visit and take photos. The following is a two part interview (big thanks to Anthony Cojocari who edited them for me) I conducted with the owner as well as some photos. Enjoy!
