Why would you just literally copy/paste another article? Is it so hard to provide original content? At least you gave it a reference, that's a start, I guess.

I need to add another to the list, R.J.Julia Booksellers in Madison, CT. A very special place indeed, the heart and soul of our community.

If you're in London you should check Daunt Books on Marylebone High Street – truly amazing to get lost in. Also, Galignani in Paris, in front of the Tuileries.

I want my ashes placed in a container built in the shape of a book put on a shelf behind locked glass doors in any one of these havens of knowledge so I can spend eternity absorbing the wisdom of mankind.
