Of course, there are plenty of other books to buy or browse, Stranger, and just because I haven't listed them here doesn't mean that I don't love them. I'm also buying books if you have good things to sell. You don't need an appointment but you might want to call ahead in case I get antsy and leave early. It's not all that professional around here.
