For me the other book store in town is not an adequate substitute. But ... society gets what society wants (Whole foods, et al.).
Oh yes, the book set me back two dollars and ninety-one cents. Thank you, Borders. And thanks for the memories.

A LIPA crew came this morning. Although power went back on Tuesday morning, two huge trees, pitch pine and wild black cherry, were leaning on wires in the back. It was fascinating to watch the highly skilled guy in the bucket as he worked, first trimming out a workspace, then carefully tying lines, "driving" his vehicle wherever he wanted, instructing the men on the ground in both Spanish and English, and cutting the large branches and stubs so that the wood fell exactly right. Skill! No damage. No injuries. Finished in an hour and a half. How he and they exulted when the big ones came swishing down and hit the ground with a thump. I really enjoyed the reality show.
