Priceless Books

Originally uploaded by Librarienne.

I stopped into the little used bookstore here in Urbana – Priceless Books – for the first time in two years. Oh, what a sanctuary a good used bookstore can be. As you can see, books are stacked here and there and on the floor (much like UIUC’s Main Stacks). There is a very magical serendipity to browsing a cluttered used bookstore that one doesn’t find in a library or even in the big-box bookstores. It was heavenly. I walked out with the book I came for – Nabokov’s Ada – plus two others.
