I visited The King’s English Bookshop in the Sugar House neighborhood of Salt Lake City. I knew about this amazing bookshop because of a book I stumbled upon years ago. It’s the house publication that tells in anecdotes the history of the bookstore and it’s relationships with authors.
The shop has eight rooms lined with books floor to ceiling, ranging from non-fiction to adult fiction, often focusing on local authors and topics about the West. My favorite room is the fiction room and the room with books about books. Chairs are scattered throughout cozy nooks, where book lovers are invited to curl up with a new favorite. The staff members pride themselves on being incredibly knowledgeable about their craft, and they’re always happy to offer up recommendations in nearly every genre.
After chit chatting with her and that she found out I’m visiting from out of town, bookseller and co-owner Sue is so kind to gift me a copy of that house publication that I couldn’t find anywhere in California.
