Everyone knows about Powell's, but the weekend of Free Comic Book day, I visited a cool little bookstore called Quimby's. It's only an eeny meeny bookstore, and I don't like their website much, but the store itself is cool.
If anyone else has any cool bookstores they like—in any city, not just Chicago—send them along. I'm going to be adding a sidebar feature of links to bookstores on this blog.
Now, if you have any pics of attractive men with beards, like this one, please send them. My beard fetish is in full swing.
