I WALKED over to West 10th to Three Lives bookstore an hour ago and got these. There were many others worth getting. Three Lives is one of those stores. They know how to stock windows and shelves and countertops and tabletops. Everywhere you turn.

I recurrently say to myself that I’ll stop getting the ‘New York Times’ delivered to me. Hardly anyone else in my Manhattan apartment building gets it. A dozen maybe get it out of 250 apartments. They probably read it online. I do too. But I’m in the morning habit of getting a paper. And sometimes like this morning’s photo of ‘Rolling Stone’ founder Jann Wenner the graphics are so large and strong that I’m glad it gets dropped outside my door. I can hear it land.
