Book Nook after Wheat Motel

 

Just a few days ago I ran a blog about the Wheat Motel in Searcy AR.  Its picture was on an old postcard that I bought on ebay.  There was a lot of discussion about it and the final decision regarding where it had been located was made by a comment from the former owner's son, Bill Mondigo.  (Thank you again, Bill.)  Go back to this blog and read the comments and see the picture.

Now look what I have found!  Folks kept mentioning The Book Nook and here is a picture of the motel as changed and with a section rented to The Book Nook.  Quite a change, wasn't it?  

This was an ad from Powell Realty.  It was for sale by this agent and apparently it sold then or later because The Book Nook is now gone.  Isn't Searcy history fun?

When we first moved back to Greers Ferry, and would be in Searcy a lot, visiting my mother, I also frequented The Book Nook.....I was used to going into used book shops in Oak Park, Ill. and found this one ideal for my purposes. Bought a lot of paperback books there.

Anita, what a difference a day makes.  Now books are a dime a dozen if you can get someone to pay a dime.  I have always loved books and went in there  to search.  If I remember correctly, they were shelved according to category.  I always liked biographies and went to that section.  The one that I had loaned out was a paperback about managing money, however, and it still had my name inside.  So I guess I searched money management too.
