gulf of maine in the new york times

In the March 31, 2013 edition of the New York Times Book Review, novelist Elizabeth Strout, author of the Pulitzer Prize winning "Olive Kitteridge" and  now "The Burgess Boys", was asked in a By The Book interview "Where do you get your books> Do you have a favorite bookstore or library?"
Her answer; "When I want a book, I usually want it right away, so if I'm in New York I'll go into the first bookstore I pass by. When I'm in Maine I go to our local bookstore, Gulf of Maine Books, and if they don't have it, they order it for me and it comes in a couple of days."
Thank you Elizabeth!
