ABC is in my top three bookstores. Didn’t know they had a Espresso station. Too cool! (But I’ll be sure and leave my credit card at home next time…the temptation of Principia Mathematica printed in Comic Sans might otherwise prove irresistible.)
Oh wow, the American Book Centre! Man that takes me back. I still have a “loyal customer” tote bag from there when I discovered it on a school trip and subsequently blew 100 euros while my classmates looked at jeans. Definitely up there with Robinson Crusoe in Istanbul and Pulp Fiction in Vancouver for me!
Wow. I’ll pick it up some time soon!
Yes, those were the days. In those dark ages before Amazon or even the internet, I drove 300km to Amsterdam to get my hands on English books… :)
I still have my membership card – albeit from many years ago. a wonderful shop!
