And speaking of bookstores, Cathy found a site that shows some of the Most Interesting Bookstores of the World—including three shots of the truly famous Shakespeare and Co in Paris.
For some odd reason an NYC Borders store at Columbus Circle is included, but it doesn't show any books. That's pretty typical for Borders since they haven't had a book I wanted in stock the last four or five times out, so I no longer shop there for books they don't have. [Conclusion of rant.]
So which bookstore do I like the best? The one in Calcutta; I'm betting that the proprietor knows every book he has in those stacks. Perhaps he has the books I wanted from Bord . . . oops.
