Paperback Canyons in Witch City

As the weather turns nasty here in New England, my thoughts turn to hunkering down with a good book. Which reminds me: if you ever find yourself in Salem, MA with a sense of adventure and a few spare hours on your hands, there's a place you should visit...

I don't think there are any actual shelves in the store

The Derby Square Bookstore is an amazing place and an ataxophobic's nightmare. I paid for my purchase through a gap between the stacks and said "thanks" to the sliver of a shopkeeper briefly glimpsed amidst the piles, then quickly escaped to avoid being engulfed by an Oprah-approved avalanche.
