Labor Day Weekend Book Haul


While friends left their apartment to get out of the city, we moved in.

On Sunday we took a long walk up Valencia. Shopping and people watching. We ended up at Mission Comics and I snagged myself a copy of Dorothy and the Wizard in Oz with artwork by Skottie Young.


I probably should have started with the first one, but in this story Baum uses the San Francisco 1906 earthquake as its jumping off point.


On that theme, walking back, we stopped at Dog-Eared Books and meandered a bit. After admiring it multiple times, in multiple bookstores over the years, I made the jump and purchased Paul Madonna’s All Over Coffee.


The pen and ink washes of the San Francisco neighborhoods and skyline are sparsely captioned. Each piece invites pause, reflection, and contemplation.


While at Dog-Eared, I spied
San Francisco Noir (Akashic Noir), a collection of mysteries set in the city.


San Francisco Noir 2: v. 2 (Akashic Noir) contains works from Mark Twain, Jack London and other well known  authors. Those two are going on the “to read” list for sure.
