. That doesn't make those not selected losers, and it doesn't make the BAC series the end-all and be-all of what's of value in any given year, but I have to assume that's nice.

Quote Of The Week
"Now I can probably find what I'm looking for online or in other cities' good bookstores when I travel. So for me, the closing of Domy is a sad event. But for Houston, it's a tragedy. It removes the one place in Houston where someone can stumble across a copy of Nobrow
serendipitously. Maybe the days of finding something obscure in a bookstore or record store or wherever is an archaic experience, obviated by the coming of the internet. But I don't believe it. Until you see a copy of Nobrow
and flip through it, how will you know this might appeal to you? In other words, finding these kinds of things by accident in a funky old store off the beaten track can expand your mind
. Especially if you're young." -- Robert Boyd
