Book Sale at Troubadour Books in Hatfield this weekend

Troubadour Books, one of the best bookstores in the area, arguably in the country, is having a 35% off sale this weekend. Dave and I just drove out there and I picked up some beautiful art and photo books for Xmas presents. Bob Willig has been the man behind the counter for years now. Chris, who you may know from Pleasant Street Video also works there. Here's a great review of the store which is right on route 5 in Hatfield just shy of the Whately town line. There's no website which is just fine. There is a massive collection of modern poetry as well as 1000+ art and photography books. It's a store with no junk books. No filler. Every edition is a treasure of some sort. Free coffee and snacks from Trader Joe's and great music sets the mood for a good two hour browse.

Today Chris was playing Death Cab For Cutie and jazz saxophonist Joe Henderson. As I looked through some Ben Shahn illustrations I realized Death Cab derives a lot of inspiration from Elliot Smith, especially the vocals and arrangements. He was on my mind because my old friend Mary Lou Lord was commenting on Facebook last night about an old cassette she found of her and Elliot playing songs together in someone's living room. I wonder if that's something others might like to hear. I should ask her.
