Book Cart in Neve Tzedek

1 October, 2009
This book stand is situated on Rokach street in Neve Tzedek. It stands unattended all year long, a tin can & a slot in the door, serving as a cash register for passersby who pick a book of their choice. The cats sit on the books, in the drawers, on parking cars, only to give you a lazy stare, as you approach the tiny bookstore. On the door, the lady of the house leaves poems and quotations, to the delight of the regulars and tourists.

    This is stellar! Beautiful and enchanting. You know I’m a sucker for books and if they buy and sell themselves, all the better.

    That sounds like a gorgeous site! And I love that cheeky ginger cat at the top of the photo, plotting a job down into the books.
