51. Very cool!
I'm not sure which would be more excellent - to own a book store or to own a pet store. The books don't need their cages cleaned, at least!

I go to a huge Planned Parenthood book sale every year. The last one sucked, though, because a family opening a book store was snapping up every title in decent condition. They had dozens of bags stacked up and waiting to be transported off, at $4 a bag. Neat for them, of course, but it made for lousy hunting that day. Oh well - next one will be better.

Good luck with your store!

Browsing is encouraged. In fact, it's required, as the entire store is alphabetical by author, no sections or genres seperated out...

Makes for a fun time, you get to do a lot of touching.

of books, of course :D
