Back in Chapter Three, I participated in Small Business Saturday by supporting independent book seller Used on New Books & More in Mount Clemens. In 2013, author Sherman Alexie encouraged writers to go out and support the independent book sellers. Used on New Books & More was my closest, hometown book store, a block over from my law office.
This year, I spent a couple of hours at Paperback Writer Books in Mount Clemens. The owner, Lisa Taylor, and her husband Davey with his partner business, Weirdsville Records, outgrew the little space on New Street and in August moved a block over to the larger 61 Macomb Street storefront in downtown Mount Clemens. The move also places the store on the same block as my law office. Too convenient for this book addict.
It was another enjoyable afternoon, which sounds redundant because time in a book store is synonymous with enjoyment.
