Flying Cloud Bookseller
Composed by Manning Lee
This whimsical bookstore recently opened its doors on Dover Street in downtown Easton. The shop is named for two renowned sailing vessels, one being the sailing log canoe Flying Cloud, built in 1932 on Tilghman Island by famed local boatbuilder John B. Harrison. The Flying Cloud Log Canoe Preservation Trust is restoring the vessel funded by the Paul B. Prager Family.
The staff is committed and equipped to find the best books for every customer who comes inside.
“There is no better holiday gift than a book. Sharing a book you love is like sharing a piece of your heart with a friend, creating a deeper connection between the two of you,” says Martha Thomas, Flying Cloud director.
The children’s book section calls kids to delight and adults to reminisce, offering titles for ages zero to 99. Each shelf is full of beloved classics which adults remember and will want to share with their children and grandchildren, as well as newly published titles. The store boasts of not just having the classics, but also several editions of the classics making it easy to find that special holiday gift for the young readers on your list.

Adults will find a satisfying variety of fiction, arranged by category, covering such genres as espionage, thrillers, and best sellers along with non fiction, cook books, biographies, music and art.
