Elliot Bay Books

I confess that on May 2nd, Indie Bookstore Day, I didn’t make it to a bookstore. But yesterday for my birthday I decided to treat myself. Elliot Bay is, and always has been, my favorite bookstore in Seattle. I didn’t think I would like the new location on Capitol Hill as much as the old pioneer square spot, but I was wrong. High ceilings, warm wood floors, people sitting for hours in comfy chairs geeking out over their latest find. And a real kick ass children’s section. It’s the best.

Here are my scores from yesterday.

I also came home to a lovely surprise from Lucy, Aki and Chris! It was this book that I was ogling a few weeks back, wrapped in Edward Gorey wrapping paper. Plus a homemade card and some flowers picked by little hands. Heart melting.

Ada at Night

My new project! A story about a girl who overcomes her fear of the night with the help of some oddball friends. These are just some preliminary dummy pages but I’m excited to see it coming together.
