There are Still Great Places to Browse Books–

FROM GEIST magazine a story about Don Stewart, proprietor of MacLeod's Books

"...Inside sits most of his inventory of per haps a quar ter of a mil lion used and antiquarian books (more than 100,000 titles), and some new ones as well. Books are crammed into every niche, alcove and cor ner of the building’s ground floor. In the nar row aisles between shelves, piles of them teeter omi­nously. Overly sensitive browsers might well give in to their claustrophobia or ataxophobia."

And while on the Geist site you might enjoy the Erasure Poem Contest
