"I sit on a table by the window on the upper floor of the City Lights Bookstore, which, its owner describes as a kind of library where books are sold. Close to downtown San Francisco, the view through the window allows me to gaze at the skyscrapers in a distance, as well as at the washed laundry hung out to dry in the building next door- a rare sight here I must say!"
•Excerpts from the travel journal•
The City Lights Booksellers and Publishers encourage readers to come and read for free, and for as long as they want, a tradition fast disappearing along with the disappearance of the brick and mortar bookstore. One of the signs on the walls says- "Educate yourself here for free fourteen hours a day." Isn't that something?
