Joared, of Along The Way, recently wrote a wonderful post about books. Are you aware that there is one and only one woman-owned independent book store in the entire state of Texas? Yep, and it's right here in Austin. The store is BookWoman, and it just moved from mere blocks away to North Austin.
In addition to books and assorted eclectic sundries, BookWoman is the place to go for live music, book and poetry readings, and lots of other celebratory activities.
If you're in Austin, I urge you to make BookWoman a regular stop--you'll enjoy the store, and help preserve a vital, independent book store. If you can't be in Austin, order online.
