|Inside Smith's Family Books|
Eugene's Tsunami Books sells new, used, and rare books. I bought Octavia E. Butler's time-travel novel, Kindred. Tsunami's mellow atmosphere serves as a community gathering spot. Our father, the poet Michael Wurster, has given readings there. When I visited, they had two copies of his second book, The Snake Charmer's Daughter.
This region's overcast, daily drizzle is a perfect climate for book browsing and book reading. It can be very cozy sitting inside with a book and a warm drink or a micro-brewed beer, while rain patters softly on the windows.
