Reader George writes in: "I was buying some books at St. Marks and overheard the guys behind the counter talking about what a good sales weekend it was. They had sold out of some paperbacks and had to order more. They said it was the best weekend they've had since Christmas!"
Congratulations and thanks to everyone who heeded the call and took the time this weekend to buy books at the St. Mark's Bookshop. Of course, one weekend is not enough. To keep this great bookshop alive, we need to keep going back.
And remember: Real books are better for your brain than electronic readers, and reading fiction makes you more empathic. READ BOOKS: Save our city from the yunnie zombies!
P.S. The petition keeps chugging along, coming up to 30,000 signatures--and it's fun to play "Find the Authors":
