Big Game 2008

As mentioned below, the first stops in Berkeley are the used book stores on Telegraph Avenue: the legendary Moe's Books, and Shakespeare & Co. right across the street. My friend Steve collects books on cinema, sports, and the British monarchy, which strikes me as an unusual combination but maybe not to some readers.

This year at Moe's, I was able to find Greil Marcus' "Prophecy and the American Voice," which is one of the few books of his that I don't own. If I recall correctly, Steve left with a history of cinema, and a biography of Adlai Stevenson.
