I was at Porter Square Books in Cambridge, MA over the weekend and I bought a few books, because that is what you do in a bookstore. Porter Square Books is small but has a cafe and a really friendly staff so I feel like it is worth the trek over there.
They also always gives you these red bookmarks when you buy a book there.
This might seem like a strange purchase for a childless adult to buy but I'm a former teacher and old habits die slowly. I found A is for Activist, by Innosanto Nagara, while digging through the cheap damaged book shelf. Since it's a board book for little kids it will eventually get destroyed anyway so I think it was worth it. I love it because it promotes being an active citizen and it is an alphabet book, which is my favorite.
I read A is for Activist over supper the other night because it is a short children's book. I am itching to start Heartless but that might have to wait a couple more weeks because I just finished the second book in Stephen King's Dark Tower series and because we are borrowing the books from friends and I'm currently only one book ahead of Steve I feel like I need to widen the gap a little just to be on the safe side before I move on to something else. But I think I'll binge on both Parasol Protectorate books when I do get to them and then it's on to the Manga versions, which I also already have sitting on my bookshelf.
