Bowling Green Hotspots Series: Grounds for Thought

Looking for a place to get away for an afternoon? Does the idea of getting lost among shelves of books strike your fancy? Are you interested in coffee and refreshments? If so, spend some time in Grounds For Thought on Main Street.

It’s one of my favorite places to go in Bowling Green, especially in the summer on a lazy afternoon. I first walked through its door about seven years ago on a summer afternoon and I’ve returned many times since then, especially once I started taking classes at the University.

The main reason I go to Grounds For Thought is to browse its book collection. There is a huge variety of books, new and old, waiting to be discovered among the many shelves. Grounds For Thought is a great place to go if you want to find something without knowing exactly what you’re looking for. You’ll be surprised by what you might find.

You’ll also find records, DVDs, videos and comic books to browse through.

Grounds For Thought is also a good place to get away for a while. Its small tables make perfect places to meet one-on-one or with a small group of friends.

There’s something refreshing about being in a quiet place that smells like coffee and old books, whether you’re by yourself or with a friend.

If you plan on sticking around for a while, Grounds For Thought offers a variety of drinks and pastries. Although I’m not an avid coffee drinker, I can count on finding something satisfying to drink while I’m there—like the several flavors of hot chocolate and tea.

If you haven’t been there yet, I recommend taking a look around. You just might find something that interests you.
