When Rosario Dawson confirmed the rumor that she and Cory Booker are dating, we couldn’t help but squeal. We admit it: our first thought was “Could Rosario Dawson potentially become First Lady?” But then we walked ourselves back.

There’s no reason we should think of her as powerful because she’s dating Cory Booker. She’s got enough power to move mountains on her own.

It’s not hard to fall in love with your local independent bookstore. From the moment you walk in, you’re greeted with an alluring brick floor or a bookstore cat or every book you’ve ever loved on display at the front of the store. It’s a book lover’s dream. And while we’re guilty of the infinite browse because the prices are higher than we thought they’d be (curse you, Amazon!), today we’re embracing that full price lifestyle – with the promise to honor and support our indies for all time. Small businesses keep our communities vibrant, y’all. Let’s treat them right.
