  1. Great photo, great list – yay Seattle. When you have a moment, please send out a list of all your fav Seattle bookstores.

    the poetry gods allowed me to indulge at Seattle’s Open Books – a poetry only bookstore.

    I like viewing your photos and lists of books purchased – soothes my panic about the number of books I “get” and then the feeling of looking at them as they sit in various piles around my office. I still am reading/have not read books from Xmas’09. Slow Slowly…

    • Really, the only Seattle bookstores I know are those mentioned, along with Left Bank Books, “Collectively Owned and Operated by its Workers Since 1973” at Pike Place Market. I went to the Twice Told Tales in Capitol Hill but there is another outlet in the University district, near Magus books.

      This summer, my book-buying has really outstripped my book-reading but then I don’t collect books to read immediately – it’s a longer-term investment. If I see a book that I might like to read in the next decade, I’d rather spend $10 now and have it sitting on hand than never see it again.

  2. Oh my. I’ll be in Portland next week, spending a few Hamiltons (is that right?) at Powell’s. Will report back with photo.
