I found JtHM!!! Yay!!! Why the hell is it stocked so hi up on the darn shelf, where I can't see or reach? Shouldn't it be down in the v's? Sheesh, morons!!! Anways and I read some of Clide Barckers work. Did I spell his name right. Meh who really cares? Then we looked at art. Yay!!! I do love this store. I hear there is a Go club every Tuesday, or is it Thursday? At somewhere between 5-7pm? I dunno.

I'm joining and no one can stop me. No one! I love this store. I want to live there. I want to work there. I want to be there all the time. But at last Backspace has stolen a piece of me as well. So I shall post something bookish sometime in the near future.

For those who know, does anyone know the difference between the "Hitchhiker's Guide To The Galaxy" and the "Ultimate Hitchhiker's Guide To the Galaxy"? I want to read the book so that I know what the big hoopla is about it.

Book Posters in Windows [Sep. 29th, 2004|04:55 pm]

Ya know the large poster-size book covers that line all the windows at Powell's? Sometimes they're poster material, sometimes they're thicker material...but they're usually a decent size. I've noticed that they change what's in the windows occasionally, so...what does Powell's do with these posters? Throw them away, give them away, sell them?
