Historians Larry and Priscilla Massie have opened Massie's Michigan Books (by appointment only) at their Allegan home.
“For the last 35 years I’ve stuck away any book about Michigan that I came across with the intention of opening a book shop,” said author Larry Massie, who has written numerous books about Michigan.
Massie built an addition on his home for the new store that houses about 5,000 books from fiction and poetry to railroading and shipwrecks.
"There are vintage books, then there are modern books too, but some of the books go back to the early 19th century," he said.
Massie says he and his wife,Priscilla, also a Michigan author, love to talk books. They invite the public to email or call them to make an appointment to visit their store.
