100 Indie Bookstores in a Single Tour

As part of Marc Fitten‘s campaign for his debut novel “Valeria’s Last Stand,” the novelist will do a little bit more–visiting 100 indie bookstores in one tour. Fitten has built a blog to record his adventures over the next few months.

Rabbit!’ Most fun $20 & 1/2hr I’ve spent in ages!” Reader Adrienne bought three books, “including Allen Ginsberg’s ‘Reality Sandwich’ and a DVD of the classic film Laura at the preview opening of the Friends Bookstore which supports the San Rafael Public Library).”
