Imagine if Powell’s Books (or Tattered Cover or any of the old greats) only had 800 sq ft to work with. It’s like that in there. Everything’s old, but impeccably clean. Wood floors, a dog, and staff that understands about books and what makes a rich life.
I hear it’s been closed for most of the past 3 weeks. I hear it opened for a day last weekend. I’ve been hearing worse things, too. So, if you go by, take a good long look in the window. If you find it open one day, go in and stay until they throw you out.
