Drawn and Quarterly's incredible Montreal book store

This summer in Montreal I stopped by the Drawn & Quarterly book store on 211 Bernard St. Visiting the store was one of the highlights of my trip to Montreal, and it is definitely worth checking out.

Drawn & Quarterly has published comics by some of my favorite authors, such as Dan Clowes. They also carry many awesome books and comics at the store from other publishers. I had a lot of fun looking through some books of R. Crumb's art. The store has a lively atmosphere and often hosts events.

On the store's site, you can find out about upcoming events at the bookstore.

I interviewed Alyssa who works at the bookstore. She told me the store has been open since 2007. Each of the staff members has a section of books that they have chosen for the store. The events that take place at the bookstore are often author readings, and book, poetry, and comic book launches. There's a stage and chairs in the back of the store for these events. These events happen often and the store is one of the most popular places in Montreal to attend a book launch.

Anker Astro E1 Candy-Bar Sized Ultra Compact Portable Charger

I've always had a good experience with Anker products, so when I saw this 6700 mAh battery on sale for $14, I bought it. I have other batteries with a lot more capacity, but I wanted one that was more compact and lightweight, but still had enough juice to keep my phone alive for a full day of heavy use.

It doesn't include the short Lightning cable shown here. You probably already have a longer Lightning cable, but it you want a short one, Anker sells a 2-pack for $13.

Ignoring the fact that the upholstery is hideous and the beds look like prison cots, this bunk bed sofa sleeper is a mechanical marvel.
