David Bowie on Books

In honor of David Bowie, one of our first floor inventory managers, Flippo, built an awesome display of books Bowie recommends, based on this list compiled and posted by the New York Public Library. Come down and check it out. You'll find it in our Fiction section. It's one of the best displays our walls have had the honor of holding. Below are some of the books Bowie recommends. Cheers to Flippo. Love to David Bowie, and to all of you.
