Department of Book Reports: And, We're Back!

Well, we have Big News this week! Jackson Street Books has flung open it's doors once again! We have moved all the cartons of books into the house and are madly unpacking, even as you read this. You may now once again order books through,,, or by simply sending us an email to And, hey! If you're going to the beach, you better stop by and see us!

While we do have 5,963 books listed, this is only about a third of the books we actually have, so if you are looking for an out-of-print treasure, or a cheap paperback copy, we'll look around and let you know if we have it. We can special order titles for you, and we will carry copies of the books that are on the General's Bookshelf. New or Used, we can get it for you.

The virtual bookstore at Second Life has been great fun and promises to be an exciting venue for show-casing authors. Dano is now DJing occasionally, and our events can be found at Thinking Liberally. Really, it's easy! If you can watch youtubes, your computer can probably handle doing Second Life, what are you waiting for? We'd love to see you there!

So, what's on your nightstand? I've been reading Wintergreen, by Robert Michael Pyle ( Houghton, used paperback $5.00 ) and his most recent award winning volume, Sky Time in Gray's River: Living For Keeps in a Forgotten Place by Robert Michael Pyle ($20.00 Signed First Edition, Houghton Mifflin) It's a naturalist's take on SW Washington, a good intro and history of our new region. I'm a native of SW WA, and my other favorites have included A Good Rain by Timothy Egan, and Sarah Canary by Karen Joy Fowler. My question this week, what book(s) best inform where you live or would love to live?

As always, lovely books can be found at your favorite independent bookstore.
