What Is a Bookstore?

 A place to visit that recaptures those first happy memories of how accessible the world is;  a place that makes you feel powerful because you find subjects to pursue; a serious place where the unknown, the surprising beckon; a place to be with others who feel a similar longing; a place that teaches a respect for learning and a humility before the generosity of authors, who for often modest rewards, share; a place that makes you feel, "I belong here."  Bookstores rock!
