I got to spend a very lovely Saturday at WORD last weekend. I hung out with the lovely staff there, ate some donuts and popcorn, watched some of It’s a Wonderful Life (which I’ve still never seen in its entirety), made a boatload of GIFs and met the wonderful book-lovers of Greenpoint.

This is the reason we still love bookstores. Because you can walk into a store, and the staff will tell you what you want to read before you’ve even asked, because you get to hang out with the authors who are your neighbors, and because we all need somewhere to go that feels like home but that’s out in the real world.

Oh, it’s also here that I finally met someone I’d never met before but recognized me from my GIFs. Hi Jamison!
