Anyone else out there prefer to buy books at an actual bookstore?
I'm one of those. I like to take trips to a store, browse the aisles, pick out titles, and take my time doing it. Every purchase comes not just with bound pages but an genuine in-time experience with people, sights, smells: life. Getting it through the mail just doesn't compare.
If you're looking to find Badge at a brick-and-mortar store, look no further Broadway Books, hands down the best bookstore in NE Portland. Broadway is one of those places in the world that are getting rarer: a genuine small business enterprise that counts on actual sales of books to stay afloat. Walk into the store and you'll immediately be greeted, asked if you need help, and if you don't, you'll be left alone to make your buying decision at your pace. The ladies up front always seem genuinely happy to assist, find you what you want, order it for you if they don't have it, or just chat. This place is one of the most distinctly Portland experiences around. I once ran into Cheryl Strayed there! During the whole Oprah thing!
So, go to Broadway Books and buy Badge, or if not Badge, something else. It's your life.
Yours in laying down the law,
