"Alas! When is human nature so weak as in a bookstore?"
Henry Ward Beecher
"When I visit a new bookstore, I demand cleanliness, computer monitors and rigorous alphabetization. When I visit a second-hand bookstore, I prefer indifferent housekeeping, sleeping cats and sufficient organizational chaos to fuel my fantasies."
"There is nothing like the smell of a bookstore. If you ask me, it's actually a combination of smells: part library, part new-book smell and part expectation for what you might find."
"Even an ice cream parlor--a definite advantage--the sorrow I feel for a town lacking a bookstore."
"I love bookstores. A bookstore is one of the only pieces of physical evidence we have that people are still thinking."
