Well, readers, I’m on vacation this week, which means, among other things, visiting bookstores I’ve never visited before. My fellow travelers generally allow me one per city. In Seattle, it was the landmark Elliott Bay Book Company, of course, where I purchased a copy of Virginia Woolf’s Orlando. Then we took a ferry out to Bainbridge Island, where, in the city of Winslow, I happened upon Eagle Harbor Book Co. I spied there a copy of Hollow Kingdom, a new novel set in Washington and featuring bold jacket art that screams "pick me up." Reader, I bought it.
