Another Note from Music City…

Leave a comment

Yesterday we went to Andrew Jackson’s home, the Hermitage, which was really fascinating. Outside of knowing Jackson’s nickname (Old Hickory), that he was considered a populist president, and that he’s on the twenty dollar bill, I didn’t know much about him – and his story and the times in which he served as our 7th President were really eventful.

In the afternoon, we went to another bookstore, Davis-Kidd.  I’m tempted to say you should visit Nashville just to visit this bookstore. Actually, there is another location in Memphis, so if your travels take you to either city – put Davis-Kidd on your list. It’s an independent bookstore with two locations, and it’s one of those places you know is going to be great the minute you walk in the door.  Bright and spacious and busy.  There were excellent books featured on every display table and a knowledgeable staff. We may have to visit one more time before we leave…
