You ever been to the Notre Dame bookstore?
Forgot about that. Spent a lot of time in bookstores and record stores in my youth. How could there have been massive 2 story bookstores and now you can't find one. Times sure have changed!
And it was a time when strangers could strike up a convo , not like how people are busy with their mobile phones today .
Yes. I still do in the city.
A place that sold books and magazines, only people lounged around and read them with no intention of actually buying them. But after that, they were still for sale. So you were buying a product and had no idea how much they were used before you bought it. How much inventory was damaged and unsaleable after use? The concept felt weird to me. It felt like taking advantage of a situation. I would just as soon go to the library to do the same thing; those resources were meant to be shared by others.
