November 13 - Bolen's

As much as I enjoy the sale tables and appreciate the soaring ceilings at Munro's, there's something lovely about how easy it is to lose time in Bolen's, the mall bookstore that kept growing until it took over the space vacated long ago by a whole grocery store:
  • Ursula K. Le Guin, The Left Hand of Darkness ($10.99: what, you're buying science fiction now?-ed.)
  • Nancy J. Turner, Food Plants of Coastal First Peoples ($25.95: let the apocalypse come)
