I really love stuff like this. In fact I take a photo of every used bookstore or independent store I visit (especially when I am traveling). Some of the places I've taken photos of have since closed. We are losing too many of our bookstores.

This slideshow makes me want to visit the places they mention. I've only been to a few of them.

oh -- right. i'm in the bad typist's habit of using brackets for parentheses because then i don't have to shift. i usually remember not to do that in LT talk though. thanks...

Thank you for including the link! Wow, I feel so inspired...

My books overflowed their shelves a few months ago, my P - Z section (by author's last name) is in the closet now. :( Tolstoy and Virginia Woolf and Sartre in the closet! Such tragedy.
And yet, I can't help buying stacks and stacks of more and more books every time I visit my local Goodwill or Book Exchange.
I can only imagine how many books I would end up leaving with if I were book-hunting in atmospheres like these places.
