excited for this one !!! @jiatortellini writes like no one else... and on top of that has been so incredibly generous in her support of my own book. I was supposed to do work today but will probably just read this instead 🧡
Soooo much gold in this bookstore! Was helping a friend out in Oakland but needed to stop off to use the bathroom somewhere along Grand Ave after sitting in Bay Bridge traffic. Found this treasure chest and ended leaving with all these. Shoutout to @dara12m for the reccomendation on "5 Dysfunctions of a Team". And shoutout to the awesome staff at @waldenpondbooks. My hands are full for the next couple months 📚🙏
I came here with a purpose to get one book I had ordered, but naturally others managed to find me, too. What is it about big old used book stores? Whether I go in with an intention or not, there’s always something—or more often, somethings— I didn’t know I needed to explore, that perfectly match my present states of mind. 📚😊 #usedbooks#buybooks#independentbookstores
A visit to Walden Pond Books (@waldenpondbooks) in Oakland and to Ordinaire (@ordinairewine) natural wine shop, down the block. My buddy bought me a beautiful edition of The Master and Margarita, then we grabbed a drink and played rummy.
What is your go to Book Store? That place that whenever you are on the area you know you will be stopping by. Even if it is only to ‘take a look’, only window shopping. . This Store in Oakland is located in Grand Avenue. The little walk from The Grand Lake Theater, passing the numerous little local businesses, until you find the book store, gives you peace! . Very cute spot, with great deals! . What is your spot? ✨📖
Happy times at Walden Pond Books on a warm Friday evening in Oakland, browsing with boy, and Miles Davis’s Kind of Blue comes on just as I see @praddenkeefe ’s Orwell Prize winning book #saynothing standing front and center in the store, right where it belongs. Also check this great Baldwin quote 👉🏼. #friday#books#oakland#literature
