Just across the street from Books of Wonder is Skyline Books. We ducked in because a. it was raining and b. it was just across the street from Books of Wonder (duh).
It proved to be kind of dingy and smelled strongly of cat pee (the offending cat was later found under one of the bookshelves), but had some interesting stock and many knick-knacks. Kakaner and I both walked out with purchases.
30% store-wide sale while we were there.
Some old humor and pulp magazines, feat. “THE CRIME OF FU KEE WONG” and “FUN FROM FRANCE.”
The New American Caravan endures some kind of viselike arrangement.
I forget what Kakaner got, but just as I was about to leave the store I spotted a row of beautiful old editions of Lafcadio Hearn’s books and picked out A Japanese Miscellany, which I featured in this post.
