Patrick | 3 comments A sad topic, but I have loved some bookstores that are no longer around anymore. Two personal favorites:

- THE AVENUE VICTOR HUGO on Newbury Street in Boston. A delightful and very warm place with a friendly cat and a great selection, equidistant between Boston University and the Boston Public Library, where I spent many a pleasant winter afternoon back in the early 90's.

- The BOOK BARON in Anaheim. Done in by rent increases. Located in a beat up neighborhood but it had plenty of parking and a massive amount of books...it may have even rivaled Acres of Books. Just closed in Dec 2007.

Liz John Steele Bookseller in Litchfield, CT. The owner was so nice, the selection was amazing, and the prices very reasonable. I miss that store so much.
