Made the mistake of stopping by with my wife on "Girl's Night." (We didn't know until we saw the sign on the door.) A quick glance through the window, and I could not discern any kind of event; people (women) just happened to be perusing printed works and I hoped to do the same. My mistake. I was called an "interloper" and received a few hairy eyeballs. Perhaps I should have taken the situation with a bit more humor, but I am new to the area and the welcome from the bookstore was as cold as the winter weather.
Why does no one talk about Eborn Books when they talk about SLC? I am from Boise and we have some great bookstores. In fact sometime in the near future we may be referred to as A City of the Book (for many reasons). But if Eborn Books doesn't begin to qualify SLC as a City of the Book then its only because people don't know about Eborn. Is it their marketing department? I am now working near SLC and am surprised that Eborn is not a household name. What a huge and magnificent bookstore. They are like the Strand of SLC. They need to make shirts and sell them. I can wear ten of them. They need to be in more people's vocabularies. Eborn books is the place! Come on people!
