Now back to The Bookstack of No Hope, my next read is Ruth Rendell's The Water's Lovely. I bought this hardcover waaaaaaaay back when I was still living in San Francisco, so nearly four years ago. The bookstore I bought it from is on the other side of The Academy of Art University's main office building where I first worked for nearly a year and half before moving to the Powell St. campus.
Ooh, I just opened the back cover of the book and found the receipt! Alexander Book Company, 50 2nd St., San Francisco. Googling to see if the store is still there...yes, it is! Wow, $7.99 for hardcover. Score.
I'm now trying not to eyeball the Stack because I have two other books I had bought around the same time from Green Apple Books on Clement St. sitting at the bottom.
