This bookstore fascinates me. I watched the video below and noticed that it was uploaded in 2008, so I did a little research because I was afraid that it might be closed by now and found this blog from January 2013. Apparently, they’re still there for now. The Dickmanns are obviously book lovers who are not in it to make money since they’re out in the middle of nowhere and don’t even have a sign or regular hours. I thought I had a lot of books when I had over 100,000!
