I <3 The Treasure House
I got this book there for a buck... it's by a guy who did alot of illustrations for The New Yorker and who invented SHREK... yes!
While I'm on the topic of getting cool books in Southeast Texas for cheap I will say the best places for that are the following...
The Treasure House
Goodwill in the Gateway Shopping Center
and Red B4 Books (where you can trade a book for a book of the same genre)
Take that Barnes and Noble!
I must admit that I bemoan the fact that there is no where to go read books and hang out at night and read in Beaumont except B&N or Sertino's maybe.
I've day dreamed about that building with the wooden shingles that is next to I-10 and under the Laurel Street bridge being a "Book Bar" where creative types could have membership and share a large common library and drink soft and hard drinks into the wee hours of the night. It'd be a perfect oasis for poets and comic book lovers alike. Comfortable seating and it would have those tall bookshelves with those sliding ladders just for show!
Ah... my dreams.
