It only took a year, but I finally got across town to visit Queen Anne Books. Such a sweet little place to browse, and they had so many books on the tables that I’m dying to read. It certainly makes a reader determined to do everything in her power to keep internet retailers and e-books from taking over the world. I signed their stock of House of Hope and Fear — just out in paperback, did I forget to mention that? — and they said they’d have a few at their tent at the Queen Anne farmers market that afternoon.
Indie bookstores are the best.
