    Asked staff member if there was a section for gay authors/gay lifestyle, was told "Yeah, all over the store." Country music was blaring through the store. Found it difficult to even browse and I love a good book store.

    Small, but Good
    I read constantly. In my small house in Houston, instead of a guestroom we have a library, wall-to-wall. I have developed the self-control to walk through a Borders or Barnes & Noble without picking up bestsellers (inevitably disappointing) however, it's difficult for me to walk through Kramerbooks to the cafe in the back - excellent selection, a good blend of by-the-register kitch and jarring jump-at-you titles scattered through the store sections. Worth a trip.
