Our pal Michael Hearst has just released Songs for Extraordinary People, a companion album to one of our very favorite books. Check it out, but only if you like interesting people. If you only like boring duds, it's not for you.

Well curated with an thoughtful and inspiring selection of books on offer. Books Are Magic, with its friendly helpful staff and events, really feels like a community bookstore too. I'm jealous it's in Brooklyn and not where I live. I'll be back next time I'm in town.

Lovely local bookstore! A store sweet enough that I visit even though they're in Brooklyn & I'm in Manhattan. :)
