Village Books Part of 'My Ideal Day in Bellingham'

For "My Ideal Day" in Bellingham, Wash., Village Books was one of 10 "must do's," according Bellingham Whatcom County Tourism, which noted that "if you love great tasting food, beautiful views and more. You can complete this list in any order and go home feeling like you've truly experienced" the city.

"Bellingham is home to several independent book stores. The most well-known is Village Books in Historic Fairhaven. This dog-friendly three-story staple is a great place to find popular and hard-to-find books, relax and peruse magazines or children's books, attend an author event, or grab soup, coffee or a sandwich. You must give yourself at least an hour to pour over their staff favorites, huge display of coffee table books, inviting kids' section, travel and cooking books, and old/used selections."
