Congratulations to Common Good Books, St. Paul, Minn., which is celebrating its 10th anniversary. In an e-mail newsletter sent yesterday, the bookstore wrote: "On November 1st, 2006, Common Good Books opened on the corner of Selby and Western. We've survived the collapse of the Metrodome, ten Twins seasons, a move to a new neighborhood, and we've gotten to know thousands of wonderful customers.... Stop by and celebrate with us!" In 2012, the bookseller moved to its current location at 38 S. Snelling Avenue.
Yesterday, Common Good Books tweeted: "Ten years ago today, Common Good Books opened its doors for the first time. First book sold was A Prairie Home Companion: The Screenplay."
