Walking downtown Salem, we wandered into the Derby Square Bookstore. The store was selling its books at a 70% discount because the owner was retiring. I guess we ere just in time because it closed a week later, but walking into the store was quite a surprise. This is what it actually looked like. If you liked a book you had to ask the owner to get it for you because just pulling the book out of astck would probably bring everything crashing down.

Great photo, Mike.
Something for every kind of reader here, no doubt.
We had a bookstore like this up here in Cobalt. It likewise closed its doors in the long run. Unfortunate.
