What a Place!
Possibly the highlight of our day in Salem (besides the seafood fettuccini and the "Far Side" loving waiter at the perfect restaurant) was the book store on the Salem Mall. Books stacked from floor to ceiling, piles and piles with narrow alleys winding through the shop - and everything at half-price.
Realizing that if we let ourselves really look we would leave with an entire library, we began to search for the cashier. With the sound of his voice he directed us to the counter - a narrow slit between piles, big enough to slide a few dollars through.
I commented to the shopkeeper on his abundance and he said I should have seen it before they started liquidating.
