William James Bookstore sells used books, but it’s not your everyday moldy old bookstore. The selection is large, reasonably priced, and turns over pretty quickly. The owner, Jim Caitley, was a buyer for Powell’s in Portland, which is one of the great bookstores, anywhere. Jim knows his books and also does a brisk mail order business in collectors’ editions.
I’ve always wondered why it wasn’t named for William’s brother Henry, who was the famous novelist, instead of the psychologist, William.
