I mean, I just got back from Powell's City of the Books, the mother of all Indie Bookstores, and I can happily report that that place rocks. Hard. Elliot Bay Books in Seattle -- they rock. River Run up in Portsmouth. Yup. Rock.
But Porter Square? I'm not sure yet. They're so new, and so clean, and so mall-bound.
So here's my official list of five thing Porter Square Books can do to insure Rock Status:
1. In-store medley of Ike Reilly tunes on the PA
2. Open bar during readings
3. Pot brownies in the cafe
4. Required chest tattoos for all employees
5. Did I mention the open bar during readings?
Any other suggestions most welcome, particularly in advance of my July 28 reading.
Hold on loosely, but don't let go,
