Who shops at indie bookstores? President Obama does
Posted using ShareThis
Oh, this makes me so very, very happy, especially on a day when I decided I was going to go on a book buying spree at my favorite indie bookstore here in Austin, BookPeople. And the fact that Obama was buying books for young people only makes me happier. Speaking of happy, my cockles were warmed when the Noche de Cuentos event I participated in last week had an info table from the Austin Public Library set up. Among the books on display was a copy of DAMAS... Call me a dork, but seeing that little sticker on the spine gave me such a warm feeling, as did the news from one of the young people who saw the book and asked if she could have it. "Yes," the spokesperson behind the table said. "You can check it out at the library!" It's the little things that make it all worth it.
