Link: A cool bookstore

Quimby’s: A very cool bookstore in Chicago. I’ve only been there once, a couple years ago, but the store had a very cool selection of zines and small-press publications. It’s a great place to find things I didn’t know I wanted, which is one of the most-fun aspects of visiting bookstores. (By the way, I’m not financially invested in or otherwise connected with, except as a customer, this store. I just like it and recommend it.)

An article at The Atlantic describes author Ann Patchett’s efforts to open and promote her independent bookstore in Nashville. It feels like a good sign.
