Evening. My knee was feeling stiff and achy again so I decided to take a long walk. Somehow, every time I wander around, I often end up in a bookstore. This time, its Aardvark Books at the corner of Church and Market Streets, right by the J-line stop. The bookstore is small but they have a great selection of poetry books and I love how its sort of haphazardly organized, like you are just walking into someone's library. They're also open until 10:00 PM so its good for evening book-browsing.
And how can you not love a small neighborhood bookstore with a cat? I later found out that the cat's name is Owen. They said that he likes to walk up and down the aisle and browse around. Isn't he beautiful? I must admit, I'm not really a cat person, but Owen is so mellow and lovely and I instantly fell in love with him.
Oh, remember how I just talked about wanting to read Marguerite Duras' The Lover? I found it here for 4 bucks! Did any of you read this book or watch the movie? If so, what did you think of it?
