I Remember – #856

I remember the lumpy, creaky, uneven floor of the Archives bookstore in the Brisbane CBD, near the police station and a 24-hour pancake place.  And the prices of the second-hand books – exorbitant!  I have seen identical, new copies of books on sale elsewhere for cheap.  I saw Montaigne’s complete essays in a battered Penguin Classic for $39.95, and the same copy, brand new, at a bookstore a block away for $40.
