I will never own an electronic reader. When engulfed in a story, I need to turn the page, hold the binding, fold down the corner. And I want the book to be all mine. The freedom to take my time and read for understanding; or pull an all-nighter and pass the book along to a friend.

Local Favorites: Used Bookstore
Enter 2nd & Charles. The used bookstore on crack. Even though the cashiers deny it, it's got to be based on McKay's in Tennessee. McKay's was a treasured spot for Eric and I. We bought our textbooks for cheap and racked up on fiction, non-fiction and good music. On recent trips to Chattanooga, I spent hours perusing the aisles with a goofy grin on my face.
You can buy, sell or trade. Trading is where it's at. Reduce, Reuse, Recycle people. As one sign stated:
Go home, pack a box with old paperbacks and CDs and get your trade on. Happy reading!
