These first edition copies currently range in price between $2.25 and $18.85. In its original incarnation, The Book Bin was less than 1,000 square feet, and yet hardly anyone who walked in left without a book because the store was filled with booksellers, passionate professionals/readaholics who were dedicated not to stocking books or working the checkout but to matching book and customer.

Can you imagine taking an oath on an e-reader? There's no better creator than McMillan of female characters who refuse to give up on dreaming, or on looking back to find the way forward in their noisy, messy, joyous lives.
