I still prefer used book stores

I went to Book People (a huge, pretty good, local bookstore) yesterday, where employee's reviews of books hang throughout the store among the books. The reviews are hand written and sometimes include hearts or lots of exclamation points.

My favorite was a review of The Collected Poems of Ted Hughes, which had a great quote in big loopy cursive: "There are two types of people: either you are someone who loves Ted Hughes, or you are someone who loves him and doesn't know it yet."
