The mere act of browsing a bookstore seems very long-ago to us, and we know many bookworms across the world are missing that once-familiar pleasure.
But for those who want their next browsing experience to feel different from before, there’s always Oh Hello Again.
Seattle’s newest bookstore doesn’t categorize its titles by traditional means — they’re grouped by emotions, reports the Seattle Times.
Highly specific emotions, that is.
You’ll find sections like “On the Trials of Growing Up and Moving On,” “Being an Outsider (or Wanting to Be Left Alone),” and “For PMS and When You Don’t Want to get Out of Bed.”
Owner Kari Ferguson explained to the Times that the concept of “bibliotherapy” inspired her unconventional arrangement method.
The Seattle Times has more about Oh Hello Again, its inception, and its reception.
