I think this is wonderful. I am glad it will remain in town. We should have a bookstore. I hope the sellers enjoy their retirment.I will be frequenting that store more after things are settled down. I used to buy books but didn't want to pay higher prices but now I have a zillion books and many left to read. So I figure I can pay the price now to have that hardback. I read Fahrenheit 51 haha. In Jr. HS and Brave New World haha. It effected me. I would love to join a book club but I don't want to read and discuss politics its everywhere. would rather have a classic cult classis too and then discuss that. Or even a good mystery... I want to relax. I also love poetry Millay is my favorite...I love philosophy and anthropology so yeah do that New Book Store owner. I will pay and I will read. Oh and BTW I have decided we should all get horses haha and hitch em up right in front of the stores..Then we can open stables... XO Deb
