Bookstores and Libraries

Here in this University town, there’s a good relationship between the Public Library and the bookstores.  In fact, just last night FD and Mr. FD went to a wonderful benefit sale at the local independent bookstore, held to support the public library.  We bought a number of holiday presents, from children’s books to calendars, and also something for ourselves:  Life, by Keith Richards.  After what seems like an incessant drumbeat (or guitar lick) of articles about and interviews with Keith Richards, it seemed inevitable that we would buy the autobiography.

FD and Mr. FD  both choose “Rolling Stones” when faced with the “Beatles or Rolling Stones” question.  Perhaps not one you use to judge whether you will have a lot in common with new acquaintances, but one that actually works quite well, at least for the baby-boomer generation.
