The Salt Lake City area has a wealth of bookstores. After discovering Weller Books, I thought I was done, but then I found Legendarium, then Under the Umbrella, then Marissa’s, and I finally got around to checking out The King’s English after being reminded by news of a bomb threat (this city doesn’t deserve all these bookstores).

Like Sunrise Books and Music in Reno, The King’s English occupies an old house which somehow seems bigger than it looks from the outside.

And on the outside there’s a social media-friendly photo spot

plus a shelf of books that you can pick up for a donation (via venmo).
