Rememberance of bookstores past

Oh wow. This used book I ordered from Biblio arrived with a BINC sticker on it!

Back cover of a Hart Crane poetry collection with an old Borders inventory sticker on it

I haven’t even seen one of these for well over a decade and I haven’t had to know what any of it means since 2002, but here’s what I can still tell you:

All of which reminds me how much I enjoyed working at that bookstore. There were tough days to be sure and the pay sucked, but back in the late 1990s, it really was a special place.

I will also note that, to this day, when I have work-related stress dreams, they nearly always take place in the bookstore.
