From Another Bookstore that Carries (and Bought) No Tell Books

Open Books: A Poem Emporium, 2414 N. 45th St. Seattle, WA 98103

While you definitely will find volumes from Random House, HarperCollins, and other large publishers on our shelves, we are just as pleased to carry the books of many smaller (even tiny) presses. Recently arrived is a selection from No Tell Books of Reston, Virginia, including the beautifully designed chapbook by Rebecca Loudon titled Navigate, Amelia Earhart's Letters Home ($9), a charming and odd, funny and sad channeling of the famous aviatrix after her plane crashes. We continue to receive mystery boxes from Ugly Duckling Presse of Brooklyn, New York, and excitedly open them to discover their latest wonderfully produced chapbooks and full-length books, several translated from Russian, Macedonian, or French. We've recently restocked a number of chapbooks from the letterset publisher Limberlost Press in Boise, Idaho, including titles by Sherman Alexie, Ed Dorn, and Jim Harrison. Yakima, Washington's Blue Begonia Press has fired up again, presenting new work by Northwest authors as well as Weathered Pages ($20), an anthology of poems once affixed to the Poetry Pole in the publishers' garden.

I had to stop in and buy last time I was in Seattle. Bill Knott sends his self-published chapbooks to them. Manila cardboard cover, green crayon title.
