Portlandia: Did you read?

Lots of buzz about the latest sitcom in the US – Portlandia, which rips apart Oregon’s haven for liberal, eco-friendly, coffee-loving, vegan, do-gooding, left-wing types. NPR toured Portland and gave its impression of the city. I believe the two main characters run a feminist bookstore but aren’t interested in selling books – sounds like Black Books to me.

Do you know anyone like these Portland folks? Who knew reading was a competitive sport?

  1. This is somewhat unrealistic. Skywriting doesn’t usually work well in Portland because of the omnipresent overcast skies.

    But other than that, this is dead-on.

  2. I’ve now watched this 3 or 4 times, and I laugh every time!

    Some book clubs feel like this!
