Just about an hour before we got to Petoskey we stopped in Gaylord because Simon giggled every time he saw the name. As we strolled the rather quiet, late Sunday afternoon in September main street we noticed a book store. In fact, our first book store of the road trip.
I made my first purchases of the trip at Saturn Booksellers. They had pretty good stock for being a small store in a small town. I also liked that they had a section for self-published books. I didn’t buy any (although was tempted by Does God Have a Penis?) but I liked the fact they were providing an outlet for self-publishers
I could have purchased more, but I was saving that for Petoskey. I have no idea about the Strauss but it was on a sale cart and Simon said something about it being good or something like that. The Vienna Melody is about a family who have to live together because their piano-maker father’s will requires it.
