What's on your nightstand?
By PIPER JONES CASTILLO
Published May 6, 2007
Ray Hinst Jr., along with his wife, Suzanne Haslam Hinst, owns Haslam's Book Store in St. Petersburg. Family-operated since 1933, Haslam's has long been considered the city's oasis for bibliophiles.
What is on your nightstand?
My nightstand is copious, but I've got Ender's Shadow by Orson Scott Card. His first was Ender's Game, and this is a "coquel." I've also got Voluntary Madness by Vicki Hendricks.
Do you recommend them?
Yes. Orson Scott Card is on the recommended reading list for the U.S. Navy. His work is a study on interpersonal dynamics with a lot of levels. With Vicki Hendricks, she's one of the only women writing in the South Florida noir genre, and she pulls it off.
What's on your customers' nightstands? What is Haslam's selling?
We exercise free choice here, but we sell Florida novelists quite a bit, like Randy Wayne White and Tim Dorsey. And The Secret continues selling well.
