I just bought an ebook from my local bookshop! First time, and I feel quite satisfied with myself. Porter Square Books sells Google ebooks and uses Adobe Digital Editions, which I can manage nicely. I'm really pleased to have the option of supporting a local bookstore with my ereader.
But the main point of this post is to show you this post at Lists of Note. Its sister site, Letters of Note, is one of my new favorites. But that post from Lists of Note is exactly how I feel in the bookstore, and why it's such an overwhelming experience. And I thank the blog for sparing me from reading the entirety of If On a Winter's Night a Traveler, which I've heard is excellent but intimidating.
