A few years ago I wrote about Beauregard, the library cat at the H. B. Stamps Public Library in Hawkins County, Tennessee. Well, it seems that Parnassus Books of Nashville, Tennessee has done H. B. Stamps Public Library one better. Parnassus Books has a shop sheep!
Last summer I had the pleasure of visiting Parnassus Books and found the staff to be helpful and kind. The book selection was wonderful and I really liked the way book picks were displayed at the front. Parnassus also has an amazing First Editions Club, if you are interested.
