"Prior to him, I sold mostly to women. The men used to come in here and stand around, trying to look cool. I used to say to them, what the fuck? Why don’t you read? Or, I would give the girl a book, and tell her to read it to the poor bastard."

I love Jim!

newyorker:

Junot Diaz: “Eventually everything I have gets read. But naturally I buy  more than I can read, so there is always at least a hundred-book margin  between what I own and what I’ve read. What’s cool is that I’ve caught  up a couple of times, and this year I intend to catch up again. But then  I’ll buy too much and the race starts again.”
- What do our libraries say about us? It’s a question the Book Bench has explored in detail in the past. The answer we came up with is: A lot.

Leah Price’s new volume, “Unpacking My Library: Writers and Their Books,” presents photographs of the libraries of thirteen   authors—including Wood and his wife, Claire Messud—alongside interviews  about their collections, their most prized titles, and their reading  habits.

You will accept nothing less than passion, and perfection, and a life worthy of being storied. So out with you, girl who reads. Take the next southbound train and take your Hemingway with you. Charles Warnke

My favorite place in Washington, DC.
I discovered Capitol Hill Books today in Eastern Market. I fell in love as soon as I walked into the dusty little shop. The stacks and piles of books, the semi-organized chaos, the the sweet elderly woman working the desk warmed my heart. It’s a charming, dizzying dream of a bookshop.
I purchased 4 books:
1. On the Road - Jack Kerouac
2. Eva Luna - Isabelle Allende
3. Sex, Drugs, and Cocoa Puffs: A Low Culture Manifesto - Chuck Klosterman
4. The Book of Drinking - John Doxat
