Dec 31, 2011. Lest We Forget

It's nice to know some people in this city of blurred rushing faces still take the time to sit down with a book. I do enjoy reading, but I always feel like I don't have the time. Books fall deep with a richness that small snippets off the internet can not replace. Looking down a staircase into this bookstore, it was as if a  barrier surrounded these people, in which time slowed into a more relaxing pace long lost to many who've embraced our new era of technology.
I hope books never really become obsolete, as most people believe they will.


  1. Bookstores and libraries are the places to hide from the world of the superficial existance. You will be surrounded by smart people and the intelligence/imagination challenged will never think of looking for you there. Books will never be obsolete, unless the smart people stop writing them. Beware, not everything that is in print is a book, and not everything on the internet is worthless.

    The picture, you gave it a very nice warm tone, that makes me feel like the bookstore is a warm and safe place to be in. The stairs appear like a cozy little hiding place where you become invisible to the rest of the world. Almost like with a book in hand you are wearing an invisibility cloak, that allows you to be anywhere, cuase your mind is elsewhere.
