Gene de Chene Books

Please go to Gene de Chene Books on Santa Monica Blvd. in West LA and buy lots of books! It's this great little used bookstore. The owner is a really cool, beautiful person and she is way too nice to make lots of money. She practially gives away books and I worry that she will have to close the store and then I will not be able to go there and browse and buy things like "The Amish Cookbook" or have a very friendly "you take it", "no, you take it, you were here first" fight with someone over the copy of "Moosewood Restaurant Cooks At Home". (The other girl insisted I have it in the end.)

Here is her blogsite:

If you go to the archives, you will find a cute baby picture.

Oh, and at the store she sells my greeting cards which is the only retail location you can find them. She bought about 40 of them from me and still has about 20 left. Well, okay, I made that up. I have no idea how many she has left other than she told me she sold "a bunch" and I saw at least 10 of them still out on the racks.

She always has brand new books on tape or CD, still in the wrapper for about $8. Those things are about $30 new. And has a fascinating collection of first edition children's books. Okay, I could go on but I won't. Just go there, you can park for free in the back and you will have an interesting time. If you're not looking for a certain book, you'll find another that you didn't even know you needed to read.

Great sounds like your trying to get a handle on things and that is great! Gotta go, I'm looking for a baby shower centerpiece for a baby shower I'm going to and I don't know where I'm going to find it. Guess I'll check out www.diapergifts.combaby shower centerpiece, I've heard that is a good place to start.
