Jonathan Karp (Twelve)

When I moved to Miami Beach in 1988, I was immediately told that the best bookstore in town was in Coral Gables, and it wasn't long before I discovered why. I didn't stay in Florida long, but from the relative proximity of New York, I've watched Books & Books thrive, and support many of my favorite authors. In January 2008, we will be publishing a hilarious philosophical travel book, The Geography of Bliss, a great deal of which was written at the Books & Books Miami Beach store. I'm not surprised that the author, Eric Weiner, decided that Books & Books was the right place to muse about bliss: It's a tropical literary paradise. Congratulations on 25 great years!
