#2- Where are you in Texas? I'm moving to Lubbock this summer.
I have a friend who's living in Lawrence, doing his PhD at KU. He loves it there--I think he's a native Kansan (we met in Minneapolis).
Medellia, much as I'd like to move away, I will say Houston-Sugar Land does not feel, to me, as emphatically Texan as it might. (And believe me, it's a far cry from Tennessee, which at least is lovely visually, or other places I've been through.) Very, very diverse, with only threads of clearly Southern/Texan identity. (Not that it changes my desire to live somewhere else. I always have wanted to be off, out in the world.)
Best wishes on your moves to both of you!
Hope you end up wherever you want to be!
Oh yeah, the topic was HPB. There are 5 of them in the Austin area, and we get to claim them as dependents on out income taxes this year. I've noticed they tend to specialize -- the best selection for rare books and for books about books seems to be the one on Lamar near Koenig. It's HUGE. The one that I seem to find serendipity most often is the on on Parmer near Burnett.
And yet, I still try to get to the independent bookstores more often than HPB.
I mostly love half price books for the used manga section since so few places where I live have that, and manga is so expensive new, especially for long series.
