With my beautiful cousin, Erica, my hostess for my first three days in town.
Books Inc went smashingly well. The booksellers there were awesome and wonderful. Indie rock bookstores blow the big guns out of the water in terms of, well, everything. I've been shocked and delighted by the kindness and attentiveness of independent bookstores. I've never felt so welcome anywhere as I did at Books Inc and Great Good Place for Books. Thank you, kindly.
It was just a very different experience to the chains, which, like, DUH, but still... Support your local bookstores, people. They support us.
And of course, no day would be complete without the Freestyle Pita girl. Obviously.
