BEEHIVE BLISS

Wednesday, August 1st, 2012

One of Santa Fe’s newest treasures is Beehive Books. Located in a charming, old house in downtown Santa Fe, Beehive bathes you in cheery, yet calming blues and yellows as soon as you enter. There are books for kids of all ages, a play area and, in a brilliant move to keep grown-ups entertained, an adult book section beside the play area.

What a luxury it is to browse a bookstore, to trace your fingers along spines and breathe in the smells of paper, binding and ink. Amazon is fabulous, we all know that, with almost every book imaginable merely a click and a guy in brown shorts at our doorstep away, but a bookstore like Beehive is like the closet in the ‘Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe’ by C.S Lewis-you never know what magic awaits to envelope you once you go in.
