Appetitive: The Top Shelf


There are very few bookshops left near me. Even the big ones like Barnes & Noble and Borders have shut down now. I ran into a bookshop that I thought had closed down a few years ago. It's very small. I thought about not even looking for classics books, but I spotted an old copy of Herodotus on the shelf. I couldn't reach. I had to use the big ladder to get up to the top few shelves where I spotted a few Loebs and OCTs.

The books were actually a good price and rather wonderful. The selection is not very large, but it's nice to know there's still a bookstore around. I bought a couple of things but I am not sure how it stays in business.
