McKeown’s Books & Difficult Music – the delta reviewI decided to eat breakfast at a place called the Oak Street Cafe, which was in the far uptown neighborhood of Carrollton, so I walked up Canal to Carondelet, and caught the St. Charles trolley line there. The weather was sunny, but not particularly hot, and with the windows open, it was actually quite cool. The St. Charles route through the Uptown was quite an unusual one.
McKeown's Books and Difficult Music
It has been part of the life of students to go to the bookstore when they have books to buy. It has been a practice for many years already. Only in the bookstore can you buy most of the books that you need. There are also the schools that sell books within the vicinity. Students could have a hard time buying the books in the school because it would require you to fall in line.
Maggie McKeown, who opened the used book shop in , says the business was edging toward a financial cliff. It's different for a brick and mortar store in the age of online. Looking back over the past nine years, McKeown says she's most thankful to the people who crossed the shop's threshold every day. That's what I'll miss. I've always loved books, but I didn't realize before I opened the store how important it is to be able to talk about them with other people.
New Orleans, LA Open 12pm-8pm daily. From the get-go, I appreciated the accessibility of this bookstore. Free street parking, no French Quarter craziness to worry about though the French Quarter does have its perks. The shop is well-organized and roomy. The shop also has substantial sections devoted to the usual suspects — science, mathematics, philosophy, history, etc. Usually I skip right on past some of these areas read: mathematics , but whether it was the layout of the store or the selection, I found myself browing every single shelf. Lots of books caught my eye.
