Quote of the Day
Author Checks to 'See Where the Local Bookstores Are'
"Do I shop at bookstores when I travel?! You should have seen my wife's epic eye roll at that question. Anytime I'm traveling, the first thing I do is check online to see where the local bookstores are. And there are a ton of great ones in the Pacific Northwest. Elliott Bay in Seattle, Powell's in Portland (of course), A Book for All Seasons in Leavenworth, Auntie's in Spokane, Trail's End in Winthrop. All those places have gotten a good chunk of my time (and money) any time I've been anywhere near them. And I hope with this book coming out I'll get the chance to discover lots more great bookstores and booksellers in all sorts of new places, too."
