This week's Constant Reader is all about a little gem of a literary strip to the north of Seattle:

To the north of the intersection of North 85th Street and Greenwood Avenue, you'll find Balderdash Books and Art with its vertiginously high shelves of cheap paperbacks (the store recently almost doubled in size, adding additional parking in back). Just to the south, 826 Seattle teaches young people how to become more effective writers. And a couple blocks farther down Greenwood, you'll find the new Couth Buzzard bookshop, a business that wants to become the heart of this burgeoning literary-minded community.

It's the second in an ongoing series of bookstore profiles. I hope you'll read it.
