    I hated bookstores with chairs and tables. Buy the book and go home

    I do, Czech. It was a Saturday afternoon tradition for me. More magazines, then books for me though.

    Also, Shopping Malls of the 80s and 90s had Waldenbooks and B.Dalton bookstores. We'd go in there and laugh at the adult section with books like the Joy of Sex, etc and thought it was a laugh riot.

    Ann Arbor undergrad in the mid/late 80's - bookstore vibes intense.
    Berkeley postgrad in the early 90's - bookstore vibes insanely eclectic.

    Grew up in Chicago - good ones there as well. Too many gone today 'cause the rent is too damn high! A real shame for someone like me. Time moves on...
