Check out this new Q&A with the esteemed indie bookseller, Powell’s. When I was at Reed College, in Portland, OR, Powell’s was my bookstore. Even then, so many moons (and decades) ago, it was a treasure trove for booklovers. Still is. The wacky questions posed made this fun to do, and as a result it covers such highly interrelated topics as halter tops, Alaska, stuffed bears, heirloom peaches, and toads.
