It's refreshing to see a spurt of new bookstores prop up around town these days. Between Pages on Livernois and DittoDitto, we're truly pleased. With DittoDitto, though, the experience of scooping a book is akin to browsing the shelves of your buddy's apartment. It's quaint, and kickass. The kind folks here keep a cache of literary classics, art books, used, and new. It regularly hosts literary events and has helped transform the corner of Trumbull and Bagley, which includes neighboring Hello Records, into a bustling sect of Corktown.
