This is the first lj community I have created and I would love some help! Please ask me if you would like to create a style for the community and I will post it. Please ask me if you would like to become a moderator and I will consider it.

I don't feel like making this a paid account, but if you do, please go for it.

In this community, you may talk about alot of things. Talk about books, authors, people you see at Powell's, things you've noticed at Powell's and even things going on around different Powell's locations. I am pretty open to diferent topics, but if it gets out of hand, I will press the precious delete button. And then I will triumphantly say, "Duh-leted!"
