The Book Bus
My bookstore on wheels sells books from the bed of a vintage 1962 Volkswagen pickup truck. Every title that gets placed on the truck is hand selected by me and there’s something for everyone. One of my favorite things about owning The Book Bus is meeting fellow booklovers and talking books. I also have a passion for getting books into the hands of kids who need them most. I take my profits from The Book Bus and buy children’s books for schools in low-income areas to help build classroom libraries and give students the opportunity to experience the joy of reading for themselves. If you're in the Cincinnati area, you may see me zipping around town.
