The Last Bookstore from “Gone Girl”

May 20th, 2015 | By | Category: Movie Locations

I love bookstores – and books.  Actual books, not the digitized versions.  You will never catch me reading on a Kindle.  I like the feel of a book in my hands, the physical act of turning the pages and the smell.  I love, love, love the smell of books.  The Grim Cheaper always makes fun of the fact that I am constantly smelling my reading materials and when we watched the Sex and the City movie for the first time, he turned to me laughing […]



“Parks and Recreation” Filming at Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena
