Quote of the Day

(My 1980s Outrageous Acts and Everyday Rebellions book release and tour) plus two more books and tours in the 1990s made me realize that bookstores were the great community centers.  Anybody could come, whether they could afford a book or not, and the spaces reserved for talks and signings invited talking circles.  Since no computer can provide this companionship, the more personal the store, the more likely it is to survive.

-- Gloria Steinem, My Life on the Road, p. 52
