We love - and love to support - independent bookstores. When we were in Norfolk, Va., we were happy to come upon Prince Books.
The best part about an independent bookstore is that the selection usually includes smaller presses and a section with titles by local authors. Prince Books didn't let us down. They also have a lovely cafe next to the bookstore.
My husband and I took a quick trip down to Hampton Roads for both a beach vacation and to visit The Virginian-Pilot, a newspaper where he used to work. He is now a co-author of The Mischiefs of Faction, a blog about political parties.
