I have to admit that the store had me hooked as soon as I saw the introduction to this article:
You won't find any Danielle Steele, James Patterson...novels at Back Creek Books. And not because owner Rock Toews is sold out.Mr. Toews is a lot more politically correct than me; he says he doesn't stock that kind of thing because it is so readily available everywhere else. I, on the other hand, applaud him for having the courage to give up the revenue he would probably generate from selling that kind of crap and focusing instead on the high quality, unique items that make Back Creek Books such a special place.
(This Theresa Winslow article was originally published in The Capital of Annapolis but I found it reprinted in the 9-6-11 edition of the Houston Chronicle.)
Rock Toews also has an interesting website for Back Creek Books that is worth checking out. Do take a look.
