if you remember red and black books on capitol hill, then you'll love left bank books located at the pike place market!if you want a book by mumia abu jamal, and are disappointed that there are none at your local chain, you can find them all here, and if they are sold out they will be happy to order them for you. they have thousands of books by poets, activists, political prisoners, and everyday people. there are stickers, calendars, books on cd, t- shirts, postcards, etc.. there are books outside the store, that if you buy, the proceeds go to books to prisoners! great place to hang out on a rainy day. this shop is small, but definitely worth the visit. don't forget to look around upstairs!
