Mark Mitchell’s Burial at the Frye Art Museum served as the visual art pairing for Sunday’s Book Club discussion about Matthew Simmons’ HAPPY ROCK.One club member had this to say about the book from Dark Coast Press: “[Matthew Simmons] takes magic and treats it as something unremarkable. Like, a girl gets super powers, so she becomes a teacher in Chicago. But that’s a decision a normal person without super powers could make too.”

HAPPY ROCK was the first selection for the APRIL Book Club. You can learn more about the APRIL Book Club on our website.

As an independent bookseller, I’m really disappointed about this. Indies need all the help they can get these days, and to have a community like Goodreads fall into the corporate hands of a small-business-crusher like Amazon…

We’re losing allies by the day. I can only hope that loyal readers will vote with their dollars to keep local bookstores in business. 

(I also posted this on Goodreads. It’s likely to be my final post there, as news of the sale has made me want to jump ship.)

Poems for $.50 in a small bookstore in San Francisco 


Rumor has it that Benediction will feature something like this, but in the form of a poet sitting in a fortune teller’s booth. Think the mechanical fortune teller from BIG starring Tom Hanks.

Come see us Monday at Chop Suey. More details here.

We made a literary coloring book. All of this and more will be at Benediction on Monday night. Drawings by Derek Erdman.

Today’s RFM featured author was named one of the ‘10 Best Millennial Authors You Probably Haven’t Read (Yet)’ by Flavorwire yesterday!

Saw this edition of The Hobbit at Target last night. Reminded me of The Avian Gospels (cause, you know, no one before us had thought to design a book like a Bible).

Who doesn’t like a book with gold-gilded pages?

Adam Novy, author of The Avian Gospels, reads tonight with fellow Hobart author, Dylan Nice, author of Other KindsThey’ll be joined by Cameron Pierce, author of Lost in Cat Brain Land, and Richard Chiem, author of You Private Person

See them at Naked City Brewery in Greenwood at 6.

Thanks to everyone who made it out to Salon at Kaleidoscope Vision on Thursday and bought phrases from Rebecca Brown’s fantastic story she wrote especially for the event! Also, thank you to our financial donors and to the Elysian Brewery for donating brews to the event.
We owe the deepest gratitude to Rebecca Brown and Kevin Sampsell for coming out to read. Without our readers, the event would have just been a bunch of literature kids drinking free beer in a high-end thrift store.
See you all in less than a month for APRIL 2013!
