A Trip to Our Town Books

Today we visited Our Town Books, an independent bookshop in Jacksonville, Illinois. Owners Jim and Sally Nurss have transformed a former salon into a quaint and welcoming space that is sure to be a community treasure.

We asked Sally two questions:

1) What is the best part of being an independent bookshop owner?


2.) What’s one of your earliest reading memories?

Thank you, Sally!

  1. What a lovely lady and such a good sport to indulge you to interview and record her comments! Wouldn’t it be great to have more cool independent sellers like this instead of the big box type bookstores! Still dreaming to open Shop Around the Corner!
