Dream or Nightmare?


(This is an actual bookstore that I have actually been to. And no, I didn't buy anything. I think that I was just too overwhelmed--and a little bit afraid of toppling one of the piles.)

It looks like Crazy Dan's! But that place is long gone and I bet you weren't out in Gradschooland when I was there.

There used to be a used bookstore in Long Beach called "Acres of books" that was similar in its chaos (but dustier). People raved about it, but I always found it too disorganized to deal with. Give me a well-curated indie bookshop any day.

During grad school, I worked at used book store that was also a bit, shall we say, overstocked. Not *quite* like the photo, but close.
