You know you are a book geek when . . . although half your luggage is books, you *still* stop into a local bookstore during the trip, just to see what they stock.
This wonderful bookstore on Spring Garden Road in Halifax, Nova Scotia has an amazing selection. I was head over heels when the staff told me they've already order The Secrets of Mary Bowser
. I'll be sending friends and family in Halifax there (note: complete strangers should also feel free to patronize Bookmark).
