10-K, 10-B

Ten random things: Reader Request Month, day 64

Ten bookstores I have visited:

  1. City Lights Books (San Francisco, Calif.)
  2. Kroch & Brentano's (Chicago, Ill.)
  3. Bonifant Books (Wheaton, Md.)
  4. Capitol Hill Books (Washington, D.C.)
  5. Books-A-Million (Harrisonburg, Va.)
  6. Prairie Lights Bookstore (Iowa City, Iowa)
  7. Anderson's Bookshop (Naperville, Ill.)
  8. Bryn Mawr Book Store (Cambridge, Mass.)
  9. Four Seasons Books (Shepherdstown, W.V.)
  10. Paperback Exchange (Florence, Italy)
I was supposed to handle one of brooding_soul's requests today, and I had the germ of an idea of how to address it, but it wasn't, um, germinating. So I skipped down several days to fulfill spuffylove's dream of seeing Books-A-Million mentioned in a list. The first of these bookstores I visited was the Kroch's & Brentano's in Chicago. That was a great store. The most recent was the Books-A-Million in Harrisonburg, which occured earlier today. See, my friend Lori had to go to H'burg for a business meeting today, and I had the day off, so I suggested that I keep her company on the long drive down. Conveniently, the BAM was less than a mile from where Lori's client site, so I hung out there while she was working. Kind of a busman's holiday, I suppose, but it's not like I really had anything better to do.
