    All-Inclusive Bookstore Includes Great Design

    There’s something to be said for a bookstore whose theme of inclusivity extends to other species (I’m looking at you, scratch-hound Duke).  There’s a lot to be said for a bookstore that’s managed to survive the tribulations of Amazon and an economy that has led many of us to cut back on luxuries (although it pains me to call a book a luxury).  But what I would most like to say about Ann Arbor’s Common Language Bookstore is a heartfelt thank you for creating a space that so thoroughly reflects its values and products.
