Neler yapacaksınız

We will gather at Tsunami Books to begin our adventure exploring independent bookstores in Eugene. Tsunami Books is one of the four independent bookstores in town. Located in a popular south side neighborhood of brew pubs, restaurants and specialty shops. Guests are welcome to enjoy complimentary tea in the store while they explore the delightful maze of shelves of used and new publications. The private rare and collectibles room of the bookstore will be open to our tour group. For lunch we will venture out in the south Willamette neighborhood to sample the local cuisine. As a group we will continue on to Black Sun Books, a small independent bookstore in a plaza of specialty shops near Sundance, one of the main health food stores in town. From there we will continue our tour and shopping at Smith Family Bookstore near the railroad station in downtown Eugene. Rumor has it that Smith Family doesn't sell books on the internet and people have made amazing finds among the stacks of books that tower along the aisles. As a finale of our bookstore expedition we will end the day on Broadway Street at J Michaels Books, a purveyor of rare books that also has a good collection of used titles as well as new books, in a historic store front in the heart of downtown.

As a clerk at Tsunami Books, a premier independent bookstore and local entertainment venue in Eugene, I find great joy in introducing visitors to the unique culture of writers, poets and musicians who frequent the stage at Tsunami. Used bookstores have been my haunts since I was young. There is no end to the wonders to be discovered in a book shop. As the only employee in the first independent bookstore in Eugene while I was at university I discovered a diverse array of writings such as the mysteries of Tibet, Elizabethan gardening, and the arresting prose of local authors like Ken Kesey. Now, more than 20 years later, after a career in business, I find myself back in the bookstore business. I love sharing the quiet calm of the bookstore with new people, as well as the thrill of the hunt for a rare edition.
