Do you remember the time when we spent endless hours in the charming bookstore?
Since on-line stores give you more flexible and more convenient purchases, we seem to find ourselves less and less time to visit the old fashion bookstore. Like in the movie "You've Got Mail.", little book shops has been wiped out by the mega chain stores. I miss the unique smell of the old papers and resourceful clerks.
On my trips, either for works or on vacations, I usually spend a few days hunting the local bookstores. But for me nothing beats Blackwell's in Oxford's Broad Street, UK. I lived in the area during the 90's and there was where I spent a lot of my free time.
From the outside, it looks very small.
But it is actually very big inside.
And thank you Olympia for inspired me with this topic.
