Your favorite long-gone bookstores

So many Dataloungers are bibliophiles that I thought I'd devote a thread to our favorite long-gone bookstores. Ones that reminded you of growing up with a love of books, even though so many of them have disappeared in the age of amazon.com (which i love, despite my sadness at the many bokstores that are long-gone). One of my favorites was St. Paul Book & Stationery when I was growing up in St. Paul, Minnesota. It was downtown, and so cool: i was bigger than the only other alternative for me, the tiny B. Dalton's in my suburban mall. I would park myself for hours in front of the comics and humor section of SPB&S as a child, and re-read a big collected edition of Buck Rogers in the 31st century (this was back in the 1970s). I remember doing this as a pre-teen once when it was raining very hard outside, and thinking that I was as happy as I knew how to be, safe and warm and reading a fun book. And you?
