Green Apple Books is by far the coolest bookstore I’ve ever been to.
I’m sorry, Downtown Books; deepest apologies, Booked Up; it pains me to say this, Book Loft; please forgive me, Myopic. To all the other great bookstores out there, whether I’ve met you or not, you’ve got a lot to live up to. There’s just no denying it.
I picked up a copy of Vasily Grossman’s Life & Fate for five bucks!
but the penultimate reason for earning my undying love is that, after two years of searching, I finally stumbled upon a copy of The Colour Out of Space: Tales of Cosmic Horror! this deserves more exclamation points, but I’ll behave myself.
In other news, I gave the gentleman behind the counter my resume and I’m not prepared to leave this city until I’ve had the privilege of working with Green Apple.
