Prairie Path BooksDo you love books and bookstores? Recently I found a bookstore that you might not know about: Prairie Path Books in Wheaton. Ever since Borders closed, I’ve been looking for bookstores to try, and recently found this one. Prairie Path Books offers a unique and inviting experience. Let me share a little of their background, and some of their upcoming programs with you.

Prairie Path Books opened last summer, when passionate book lovers, Heather, Sandy, and Jenny made it happen. The bookstore is a partnership with Toms-Price Home Furnishings in downtown Wheaton, where the books are tucked in the back of the furniture store. As you can tell from their slogan, “Gatherings and Great Reads”, the store sells books, and features fun events, with welcoming hospitality. Events include:
