We had a great time in Chicago and believe it or not our hotel was next door to a Books-A-Million. I swear I didn’t know that when I booked it. It must be my Bookgirl Radar working. Heh. We didn’t go to that bookstore but found an awesome indie bookstore instead.
We also enjoyed a thought-provoking exhibit at the Museum of Contemporary Art. Massive Change will make you think about consumption and innovation, and how design plays a fundamental role in all aspects of life. Plus, the museum has a store which is to die for. How we left with just a few items is beyond me. My husband has a mile long list of design, typography and art books he plans to get one day. I really want this book and this book.
Moving on, I know I said I wasn’t planning on any more challenges or book group reading this year but I cannot resist the challenge presented by Overdue Books. It sounds just like what I need to help whittle down my stacks.
