IS IT LAZINESS?
Or is it something else that keeps The Writer’s Almanac, Garrison Keillor’s daily poetry/history/writing newsletter linking its featured poets and writers to just one source?
As I was reading the newsletter this morning, as I do every morning, it occurred to me to try one of the “books by this author” links to see where the Writer’s Almanac is sending its readers. I can’t imagine why I never thought of doing this before. Where does the link take you?
And there are mail-order alternatives: Barnes & Noble, for one. Powell’s Books in Portland, OR, for another. Even better: Any reader can call a local independent bookstore and ask the staff to order any book. Try it; you might like it.
