November 2012 NYC Bookstore Events

Portlandia: A Guide For Visitors
Portlandia: A Guide For Visitors

Hey folks, sorry for the lack of updates lately, but I’ve actually been out of town for a few days, so the site has been languishing a little. Thankfully bumpershine HQ was unaffected by hurricane Sandy, and now that I’m back and the kids are in school, and everything is starting to return to normal, regular updates should resume. Hope you’re all well after the big storm, and if you’re not, I hope things get better for you soon.

I know this roundup is a few days late, but it feels like we really didn’t miss anything.
