I like books. I’m one of those. I also like bookstores that aren’t boring and sterile. My skin shrivels a little when I walk past the Barnes & Noble on Court St. near my apartment and I feel a blast of recycled chilled air and see the sign for “religious self-help.” Next.
Luckily places like powerHouse Arena still exist. It’s not an actual arena, although it is shaped like one: they sell books there, and sometimes host interesting discussions with authors of said books. I’ve heard Colum McCann and Frank Bruni read there before. And right now, they’re having a sale. Books ‘n’ shit for 50 – 95% off. They sell a lot of lovely photo books as well as great fiction and non. Go get ‘em. You’ve got until September 6th.
