{Fiction} A Past Life Worth Living

E-Book Immortality and Nostalgia Yellowing, Gone

There is a secondhand bookstore not far from where I live called Recycled Books. The purple-hued two-story building sits on the northeast corner of the town square in Denton, Texas-- only a stumble away from the local bars, an antique mall with a truly impressive collection of faux-medieval edged weapons, and a pizza place that is kind enough to let my band play in their basement and pay us in cases of Schlitz.
