Conversational Reading

FYI, Scott Esposito is leading a group reading of William H. Gass’s The Tunnel over at Conversational Reading. It’s three weeks in, goes until  3 November. Schedule’s here.

Latino Book Contest at Conversational Reading and An Earnest Post About My Favorite Independent Bookstore

Scott Esposito wants to give five books each to five Conversational Reading readers. All you have to do to be eligible is write about your favorite independent bookstore and email him. Full details:

To enter, simply email me a short description of your favorite independent book store. Make sure to include the city and state it’s located in, and why it’s your fav. Also include your mailing address (sorry, no entrants outside the U.S. and Canada, and no PO boxes) and make the subject line Conversational Reading May Contest.

I’ll pick five winners at random and announce here next Friday.

Here are the books:

1. B as in Beauty By Alberto Ferreras

2. Into the Beautiful North By Luis Urrea

3. Hungry Woman in Paris By Josefina Lopez

4. The Disappearance of Irene Dos Santos By Margaret Mascarenhas

5. Houston, We Have a Problema By Gwendolyn Zepeda

I’m not sure if he’ll post all of the entries, but I hope he does. I enjoyed reading the Bookstores Category at Maud Newton, so it would be nice to have more of that, I think. After the jump, some memories of my favorite used bookstore.
