"We are lucky enough to have a bookstore right in our neighborhood, the wonderful Porter Square Books. We go to the children’s section in the back corner and play with the puzzles and pat the giant bear who lives there, and we read books. And inevitably, we leave with a book, too. With each visit, I hope my son sees that a bookstore is different from a hardware store or a grocery store, where you run in because you need a screwdriver or a gallon of milk, then leave. I hope he’s learning that a bookstore—whatever the size or location—is a place where you explore and encounter new ideas. I hope he understands what I learned in that long-gone Waldenbooks in the mall: that books are important and worth taking time for, and so are bookstores."

  3. I do remember thinking ‘You can’t get involved in the particle physics of fantasy.’ You can take it down to a certain level but if you get too involved in the particle physics then it’s not [useful] to continue. So I guess we have a branch of science that even its practitioners do not understand, that they may as well call magic.

  7. joebfoster said: Hey guys! Any recommendations for a 14 year old kid who is looking for a book about gangs? Preferably with an African American protagonist.

    wordbookstores:

    There are a lot of good Walter Dean Myers (RIP) titles, especially Monster, Autobiography of My Dead Brother, and Scorpions. Might be a little out of date, but there’s also Rumble Fish by S.E. Hinton. 

    And on the more mature autobiographical side — although most of these folks are recounting their teen years — there are a bunch.

    African-American protagonists: Monster: The Autobiography of an L.A. Gang Member; A Chance to Win: An Ex-Con, a Little League Team, and the Quest to Redeem an American City

    Latin protagonists: Lady Q: The Rise and Fall of a Latin Queen by Sonia Rodriguez; Always Running by Luis Rodriguez (who is now an award-winning poet); and My Bloody Life, by Reymundo Sanchez.
