Not so much moving up, as moving down and over!

It's official! Blue Cypress Books will be relocating to a new location at 8126 Oak Street (former Lil' Dave's Alterations for you locals).

Blue Cypress Books will continue business at 8128 Oak Street until the doors close around mid-September and re-open just next door. Look for local art, local and regional music, and gifts to be added to an expanded selection of high quality used books.

Thanks to those who have supported Blue Cypress Books so far!

Do you have any Bukowski?

As usual, I'm all out of the Bukowski's work but one thing led to another led to this article in McSweeney's . . .

If Charles Bukowski Had Written Children's Books

The Whore Who Snored

Why Is Grandpa Heaving?

The Years Will Fly Like Hummingbirds and One Gray Day You’ll Die

Love Turns to Crap Like a Sandwich

The Alley Cat and the Wounded Dog Share Scraps of Bird and Dung

Uncle Hank’s Sack of Empties

Wishbones Come from Chicken, Harlots Come from Hell

The Park Bench Where You Eat Your Lunch Will Be Your Bed Someday

Give Up Now

On the move . . . maybe

Blue Cypress Books loves its' space in The Mockingbird, but maybe it is time to move on up (or actually down and across). Locals may be familiar with 'Lil Dave's Alterations, an institution here on Oak Street. Well, 'Lil Dave's has moved across the street into the former Eclectic Design, which in turn moved down further on Oak Street into the former Jefferson Feed & Seed. Whew! It's like a game of checkers 'round here. So to continue the incestuous pattern, Blue Cypress Books will be reviewing a lease for the space right next door where 'Lil Dave's survived and thrived for 15 years.

Keeping good thoughts while slogging through legal terminology.

Wish me good luck (and signed First Editions!).
