Bookstore Quests

Posted on: October 3, 2006

A couple of years ago, a friend blogged about a great art installation — in a bookstore. The Adobe Bookstore in SF to be exact. I was actually on my way to California right after, so I made a point of going to the bookstore, to see the books all arranged by colour. The juxtapositions were fascinating, Balzac next to dog grooming…

Anyway, it’s time for another bookstore quest. This time, my husband and I are going to Portland, OR, so that I can go to Powell’s City of Books, supposedly the largest bookstore in the world. Fills a whole city block.

Can’t wait.

Interesting ambiguity there…my friend blogged about the art installation which was in the bookstore (well, actually, it was the bookstore!) from the comfort of her own house, not in the bookstore.

Does anyone care about this but me?
