Now it looks like residents of Beacon and Dutchess County can add reading a book to that mantra. Maybe they can read while waiting for the laundry cycle. A bookstore just opened up shop in the old location of the short-lived clothing store.

Despite being in an age where almost everything is digital there is still a necessity for us to escape the computer screen and one of the best ways is to read g good book. Reading exercises the brain, helps with focus, entertains and is a healthy way to fall asleep after a stressful day.
