Chapter Two: Used books aren't

.i,

BY VERONICA WOOLRIDGE
Ann Arbor is an intellectual
haven where bookstores flourish,
especially the used bookstores.
"According to
the New York
Times Book Re-
view, the Wall
Street Journal and
a couple of other
periodicals that have come out in
past years: Ann Arbor reads more,
buys more books per capita and
spends more per capita than any
other city in the country," said
-David Deye of Wooden Spoon

Books, "Used, Rare, and Out of
Print." The 20-year-old Wooden
Spoon is owned by Darleen Mar-
shall.
Deye says a definite trend in the
market place is people reading more
non-fiction and history.
ANOTHER trendy interest is
"New Age" - a genericterm for
interest in metaphysical, spritual,
holistic, and alternative approaches
to age-old questions and concerns.
Books on astrology, Tibetan re-
ligion, healing crystals and gems,
witchcraft, shamanism, and explor-
atory consciousness-raising med-

itation, as well as one of Ann Ar-
bor's largest assortment of incense
collections, can be found at Crazy
Wisdom. The bookstore was opened
five years ago by Aura Glasier. She
started the enterprise as a personal,
metaphysical, special interest in
spirituality.
Jim Johnston, who works at the
store, says, "People come in and
spend time in an unhurried way.
People generally like the feeling in
the store and are surprised by the
variety."
SOFTLY spiritual melodic music
adds to the atmosphere of the store,

"The Wizard of Art," Glenda the
Good Witch whispered to Dorothy.
"If you want to get back to Kansas,
you must go and find the Wizard of
Art.,,
"But where do I start?" Dorothy
whined. "I never
even knew Ann
Arbor had a
Wizard of Art. In
fact, I never even
heard of Ann
Arbor until this
awful tornado
whipped me and Toto up ...."
"Just chill out Dorothy" Glenda
said, rolling her eyes. "If you're that
stressed out babe, I personally will
help you out."
"Oh Glenda, will you really?"
"Sure," Glenda sang as she
smoothed down her over-sized pink
prom dress and touched Dorothy's
head with her magic wand. "And if
