No. I'm in OR now, so it's all a pipe dream of memories

Yeah, I love used book stores too. The Book Again place, when I frequented there, was run by a nerdy, skinny looking guy who looked kinda young & had a ledger that he seemed to be keeping track of everything in. The sorting arrangement was meticulous & there was a bargain bin outside the front door.

There was also some kind of tasty dive in the same shopping center.

Currently, I stick to thrift stores for my used books. You'd be shocked by the selection.

If I could return to LA, I'd definitely stop by & say hi to the guy who runs Cozy Cafe & have a cheeseburger with chili fries on the patio outside... I asked for cheddar once & he looked at me fiercely, proclaiming: American cheese is good for EVERYBODY!

That's not walking distance? (I even did this on a date once.)
