After running errands downtown, FunkyPlaid and I went to Powell’s City of Books simply because we could. Now that we live only a short drive away, it will be difficult not to end up there.
Jorge Luis Borges’ quotation comes to mind:
“I have always imagined that Paradise will be a kind of library.”
O, of course I bought a book: a used copy of Samuel R. Delany’s “Dhalgren”, a groovy mass-market paperback edition from 1978.
I’ve received a few other books as gifts over the past couple of weeks, but I am saving them for their own posts. (Cheating? Maybe.)
Writing from: my makeshift study in the dining-room. Listening to: “Happy Idiot” by TV on the Radio.
