‘Twas the summer of 1996, on a particularly Californian afternoon. A young befreckled me sat in my room, listening to either No Doubt or Weird Al Yankovic, arranging my library by genre, then alphabetically by author, pining for something new to read. Mom walked in and said, “I have something for you…” and my world changed.
Recently I went on vacation to Portland, OR to visit a friend. Or that’s what I told her, so I could have a free couch to sleep on and a built-in tour guide (Thanks, Victoria!). Really what I was going for was greenery, environmental research of true hipster oddities in their natural environment, and Powell’s City of Books.
