Everyone keeps telling me, "Stories is the coolest bookstore." Do you have any tips for people who want to open up their own cool bookstore?

Good air conditioning, minimal pretension, cool books.

What are a few of your favorite books for sale at Stories right now?

Mark Leidner - "Under The Sea", "The Iceberg" - Giorgio Di Noto, - "Twenty days of Turin" - Georgio De Maria. I have no particular fetish for italian authors and artists,  this is a weird coincidence. 

Do you have any big plans for the end of the summer?

Planning to celebrate the drop in our power bill, good AC is expensive.
