While waiting for a copy job at Kinko’s I took advantage of a 45-minute window to shop at my beloved Brand Bookshop. A charming, old-fashioned store to be sure (with well-defined and labeled sections for even the most anal retentive of us), but check out this link to search their massive inventory online.
Their window is always an eclectic story, and most of the time I only buy things in the window.
Today I actually went into the store because I had more time, and here’s what I came out with. The Ballad of the Whiskey Robber was from the window, and the book about Koko the Gorilla was at the front desk.
