No Place Like Tome

Old-school book hunt at the Heard

Oh, Amazon. Sure, you’ve made book buying convenient, but the experience is as bland and predictable as a James Patterson novel. We love the aroma of publications past, the stacks of colorful book spines, and the sound of shuffling pages. You give us the Kindle? Please.

Thankfully, for those of us bookish browsers who love the thrill of the hunt as much as we love a Tom Wolfe page-turner, there’s the 14th annual Heard Museum Guild Library Book Sale. Boasting more than 30,000 titles on everything from cookbooks to classics and paperbacks to rarities, they’ve got something for everyone (including a silent auction and children’s area). Want some crafts with that Conrad? Peruse the selection of American Indian vintage jewelry, prints, and pottery. Surely, the stress-free scene makes buying a good book feel as good as curling up with one.
