  •  A lovely diary, Dave, that tugs at my heart. (3+ / 0-)

    I so miss Pickwick (Hollywood location); the scent of the place, the vibrant atmosphere, the patrons of all social strata. Epstein's placement of knowledgeable employees who could assist with any request was icing on a delicious cake.  Everyone was united in love of the written word.
    My children will not have the thrill of the store to pass on to their own.
    As you suggest, it is possible their children's children won't have any bookstore to wander in... It's a painful thought for me.
