Just Books

There is a bookstore down the street from the Rare Hare Studio and Lestat's whose sign simply says "Books", aka William Burgette Books. There are tons of books and you would think that this place wasn't organized, but it is. They also have quite a collection of mannequin heads (some shown above) and other interesting decor including a totem pole, a mannequin with a Nixon t-shirt and political buttons, and a bunch of other stuff. Best of all, I saw a guy with a peace sign tattooed on his bald spot. This neighborhood is called Normal Heights, but people joke that it is Abnormal Heights, can you see why?

It isn't often that I walk by a used bookstore without going in. I'm not their best customer as I'm trying not accumulate stuff but there is nothing like a good used bookstore.
In Vancouver there seem to fewer of them as time goes by.
