We let Stacie cheat a little at the end with the letters because it was so funny and indicative of the problem many of us faced. 50 just isn't that many. Milwaukee has long been a great book, and art in general, town and its been fun to see the several stores rise from the ashes of the Harry W. Schwartz stores. Boswell is one and from there you can jump to Daniel Goldin's blog or the bookseller blog.


  1. I'm originally from the Milwaukee area, and stll have family there, so I was sad when the Harry Scwartz stores closed. I'm glad that Boswell Book Co. opened and is doing well. Great neighborhood too!

  2. That's great to hear! Hope we can help you find some good readin' next time you're in town to visit family!

  3. No woman gets an orgasm from shining the kitchen floor. Hey, i am looking for an online sexual partner ;) Click on my boobs if you are interested (. )( .)
