There is little nothing you can't find online..probably at a better price delivered to your doorstep...Not online? visit local Library or Charity shop...fuck paying new prices for a book you might buy elsewhere in time for pennies.

And if all the new book stores close down where will the second hand books come from

This is a gone a bit out of hand now. The Waterstones story is just a story so far.

Sad really when you think about it.
Happy days when Patrick St. had Roches Stores, Cashs, McSweeney Photos, The Moderne, The Imperial Hotel, Woodford Bournes just to name a few classy looking establishments.

I'd add the Victoria Hotel to that, how I'd love to see it open again.

I remember my dad used to bring me to a large Bewleys café when I was very young, I can't for the life of me remember where it was though. In my mind it's near where Opera Lane is now.

Yeah. I forgot to mention the Victoria.
Didn't Thompsons use have a café on the corner of Patrick Street and the street that leads to St. Peter & Pauls church at one time? The Pavillion Cinema was a class looking building too.

Remember the Queen's Old Castle? All kinds of shops. Used to spend an hour or so in there on a Saturday. Noddy's, Java Joe's, lads. The whole place is a Dealz and an Argos now. We've slit our own throats.

Progress, they call it.
