You know the impulse items at the checkout? What if one of them was a bookstore? This woman is interviewed about her split second decision to buy an entire bookstore after hearing Tracy K Smith speak on the radio. (Thanks, Tipster Art!)
Buried deep within the alluvial silt of Twitter’s great and brackish tidal id one discovers, every now and then, a gem pure and bright. So it was I came across this thread from Bayfield, Wisconsin resident Julie Buckles, telling the story of her impulse buy (!?) of used bookstore, What Goes Round, after hearing Tracy K. Smith on the radio. And instead of just embedding all her tweets (some of which you can read below), I got in touch with Julie to find out what the hell, exactly, transpired that night.
