This Week's Topic:
Where do you buy most of your books? No one is judging!
Well, actually, I'm judging, judging myself, that is. After hearing about Amazon's new App (Ursula K. Le Guin has a cutting comment on the topic.) I've boycotted Amazon for the Christmas Season. And I've bought 10 books in the last two weeks.
3 from the Local Bookseller (A co-op, that's charming, and can order anything super fast)[ Medicus, The Name of the Wind, Beta Test]
2 from the campus bookstore, [The Dangerous Book for Boys (Audio), Small Memories (Jose Saramago)]
3 from my favorite used bookstore [The Measure of her Powers: MFK Fisher, The Lives of Christopher Chant, Inda]
1 from the newsstand next door to where my critique group meets (all the new mass markets) [The Spirit Thief]
1 from the amazing toy store on the commons that has a perfect selection of all the best kids books. [The Clockwork Three]
Honestly, I'm blessed to live in a town with so many booksellers. I didn't even have to trek out to Barnes & Nobel!
