Alice Gregory at the NYTs, ponders our half-memories of books read and nearly forgotten in her essay about Loganberry Book's Stump the Bookseller.

"Frantic new parents, determined to recreate their own childhood libraries for their offspring, often write in; other times, it’s someone like me who suddenly, for reasons no amount of psychoanalysis could ever explain, simply must know the un-Google-able title of an illustrated book about sarcastic pink cherubs flying out of paintings to taunt museum visitors."

Sound familiar?

I've been to Loganberry Books, and it's a lovely place.

They do an Edible Books event every year, and house a bindery. Well worth a visit should you ever be in the Cleveland area.

Kicking myself that I didn't know that before my brother moved back from Cleveland to Pittsburgh. I'll probably not have a call to visit there again.
