Indie Bookstore Number 2

What: Changing Hands Bookstore

Where: 6328 South McClintock Drive, Tempe, AZ

What I have found:
1. A first-edition copy of Edward Abbey's Hayduke Lives!
2. A copy of Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil, signed by John Berendt...for two dollars
3. Almost every book for every literature class I took at ASU, at about half of the campus bookstore's price.

Why you should go: This is the place for readings in Phoenix. They support local authors and artists. If you forgot a birthday present for anyone--from Grandma to your best friend's kid--you'll find it here. Their new location is connected to a Wildflower Bakery, and who can resist that peach and lavender smoothie?
