I can’t wait to take on the new book I purchased from Boston on Sunday. I picked up ‘When I Was Puerto Rican’ at Brookline Booksmith. I strongly believe in supporting independent book sellers, so when Andy and I were in Boston over the weekend, I wanted to bring home some items from this great bookshop. Along with this story, I picked up a book on Japanese death poetry, and a short story compilation from Harumi Narukami. I can’t wait to begin reading them!
Our weekend Boston excursion was memorable. We saw the Glitch Mode Tour last night at Brighton Music Hall. Cyanotic, Rabbit Junk, and Kanga performed. Two other acts performed, but we missed them due to our looong search for parking. It was an awesome show regardless.
Today we got to visit Brookline Booksmith. I always wanted to visit this bookstore ever since I became aware of them during my first Boston visit back in 2006. We got to spend some time in the shop this afternoon. It was time well spent.
We stayed in the Boston area for exactly 24 hours, but it was such an amazing time. I feel like we got to experience just enough of what we wanted, given the time we had. We did see more in the area, but I’ll write more about our trip in another post. It was certainly a weekend Andy and I both enjoyed, and we can’t wait to return.
