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?

"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
