Spoils From the Weekend

Getting rained out of a Cubs game can have its benefits. To wit: I wound up hanging out in Wicker Park with a good friend of mine who — despite being warned — allowed me to wander unsupervised in a record store and a used bookstore. Picked up Slanted & Enchanted and Signals, Calls, and Marches on vinyl, and hit the mother lode at Myopic Books (which is one of the best-curated and best-organized used book stores I’ve ever been in) on N. Milwaukee. Bright Lights, Big City; V.; Falconer (which I’ve been trying to find cheap for a while now); No Logo; and The Adventures of Augie March — all of which came to under $30. Very exciting!
