Good morning Endre. In the sea of glass, metal and concrete of downtown Chicago there is one last bastion of the past. A used bookstore. Gotta go! Enjoy your day.

Are those books literally flying off of the shelves?  That is a very cool picture you shared with us.

Endre,

I love that photo.  One of these days, we are going to have to get ourselves to Downtown Los Angeles.  Perhaps we will take the train...A

HI Endre- what an intriguing photo!!!  I used to love going into bookstores and looking at all of the new books that were out and the different specialty sections.

As you know, I'm a big bookstore fan and my favorite is a small local one near me. I absolutely love the smell that takes over your senses the minute you walk into the door. I believe what is so wonderful about that is that, indeed, it takes you back to simpler times. 

What an interesting display, Endre! Great shot of it!

Ron and Alexandra Seigel  I spoke with a friend yesterday he lives DTLA in a luxury Condo and he said well let me bite my tongue what he steps over trying to get out of the Condo.... it is more about the trash and public exposure during natural movements to name a few.....

Endre Barath, Jr. we were shocked when we saw tents near the veteran's cemetary on San Vincente and Wilshire...And our friend who has an office in Westwood just south of Wilshire, has had to replace his office windows twice now, as some homeless person keeps breaking them.

I have a collection of them too, Endre! And, reading them has always been a favorite thing of mine to do. My grandmother instilled a love for cookbooks many moons ago - and it stuck!
