Common Good Books
Owned by the artist formerly known as Garrison Keillor (before he changed his name to an unpronounceable glyph), Common Good Books is an independent neighborhood bookshop offering an eclectic array of novels, novellas, and poetry for one's intellectual enjoyment. If browsing the shop’s best-selling books, such as The Elegance of the Hedgehog ($15 for paperback) and The Turtle Catcher ($24 for hardcover), leaves one overwhelmed by the options, ask Common Good's friendly and almost frighteningly knowledgeable staff of bibliophiles for a recommendation. They love helping customers find the greatest book they've never read, as well as reciting Homer’s Iliad verbatim in exchange for a buffalo-head nickel. You can also talk to a local author at one of Common Good Books' many events, but don't be surprised if the writer suggests reading something from the signed stack on the table.
