Portland's super special bookshop/gallery/event space needs our help. Reading Frenzy, who since 1994 has devoted itself to a mission of supporting independent/alternative media and culture, has been a very important part of my life in Portland: stocking their shelves with my zines, hanging my paintings on their walls, carrying crafts I made by hand when I was just learning to sew, being a resource and inspiring me along with so many other people and projects in the Portland community and beyond. I know a slow day can be lonely because I worked behind the counter there for three years, and word is that things have been especially slow lately. Please visit the shop and show them how much they matter by spending some cash. Not in Portland? You can shop online and read more about the store and their situation on their website.
