Critiques on Kaboom Books
“Quarantine (and beyond) reading.”
Kaboom Books may be closed, but get in touch with them and they’ll find you something unexpected to read while you’re cooped up. I asked for Burroughs, Yeats, and Neruda, and they delivered in spades; “Read Russia!” and “Literature from the Axis of Evil” were the result of asking for contemporary short story collections. Like John and Dee say, books are essential. Go buy some.
“It is sublime to be surrounded by towers of books!”
I couldn’t stop smiling at the sight of so many towering bookshelves! When I asked the owner if I could take pictures, he simply replied “as long as you don’t take any of me”. At first glance, the sheer volume of books is overwhelming, but the bookstore is organized by subject. Some sections have an applicable prop such as a skeleton for anatomy. There are also various seats and ladders sprinkled throughout the store. I plan to return for closer perusal of the culinary and gardening books.
“… a gem in Houston.”
