|Portland's Title Wave Used Bookstore.|
Being a writer, I love books. I love all aspects of it. Paper, ink, craft. As a kid I used to dig the crisp sheets of printer paper out of the trash and save them. Bills and statements on nice paper? Saved 'em. I had piles at one point, stacked hither and tither because I couldn't bear to see such luscious blank paper be unceremoniously lumped in with banana peels and broken glass at the dump. I think I only got rid of them when recycling services finally showed up on Maui. My precious paper reincarnated? Yes, I could part with them then. And I did only because my mother threatened to incinerate them if I didn't.
So, as our home basement remodel project rages on (see the latest post on my personal blog, Go Indie or Go Home) we have been forcefully evicted (the convo went something like this, me: "Spray foam? It's not that toxic, we can stay in the house." contractor: "No." me: "Why? We did it last time." contractor: "I wasn't here last time, please stay out of the house." me: "I don't see--" hubby: "We'll leave.") from our house which also serves as our office. We hit the streets heading to our nearest library (did you know you can rent ANY book you want from these places?? I swear, I love these library things!) where WiFi is cheap and the atmosphere is studious only to find that we've cut their funding and now they only open at 11am. So, lost and looking for an alternative, we wandered until I remembered that Multnomah County (Portland Metro area's county) has a used bookstore called Title Wave Used Bookstore.
|The view over the top of my laptop today... the romance novel section, well within view.|
|Hardbacks for $1.50... *groan* I'm probably not going have my $5 in my pocket when I leave here today.|
Surrounded by books, I think this is the perfect opportunity to work on my mini-romance novel project: The Librarian. Or blow my last $5 on trashy romance novels.
|Awe ya! 75 cents baby!|
