Maya Books & Music store has turned into my favorite place to stop into whenever I am in Sanford. The owner, Yvette always has a wonderful smile and a friendly word for me. I am writing an opera on a Mexican theme. I was having trouble finding books on my particular subject so I asked Yvette if she had any books or music on the subject. At first she said she couldn't think of a single book but said she would watch for any books or CDs on my subject. Well, within a week she found me a wonderful, colorful illustrated book almost new on my subject. History, art, information all in one coffee table sized book - a work of art in itself. Maya is my favorite place to stop in whenever I am in Sanford. I can browse to my heart's content and enjoy the special book store atmosphere. Oh yes, the beautiful owner should have her portrait painted in Botticelli Birth of Venus style. She is that beautiful! She also found me a CD of Phillip Glass music which is also inspiring for my opera. I give Maya Books and Music a 5 star rating. She has turned into a special friend and research assistant.
