Used book stores have so much romance to them. I’ve got an afternoon off and headed downtown to browse the used book stores and have a coffee. I love the hunt for a good used book. And what’s a treasure for me certainly isn’t for somebody else. No luck today. I never found the right book. But I’ll be back.
It got me thinking about whether book stores will go the way of CDs. I mean, people used to steal CDs from cars and sell them for big money. Now they are like coasters to people. Will books go this way too with all the new technology. I can’t see it. Regardless of what the futurists tell us — do people want to spend their relaxing days staring at a screen? I don’t.
Long live the used book store.
