BookSmile sign. Phuket Town, Phuket, Thailand, November 2010.

Thailand is known as the Land of Smiles, so it’s no wonder I found so many smiley faces there. This one was a sign for a Thai bookseller, BookSmile. Apparently, they’re pretty widespread, but they’re not a huge bookstore like Barnes & Noble or our massive Powell’s Books here in Portland. They’re more like the Starbucks of books, small operations that can stand alone but are perfectly happy to tuck into corners of other businesses. This one was in the back of a convenience store. Which was very, well, convenient!
