*thinks it over*

A dildo factory?

*clicks link*

Oh, yeah. That's cool too.

♫ Look
If you had one shot, or one opportunity
To read everything you ever wanted
One moment
Would you capture it or just let it slip
yo

Her palms are sweaty, knees weak, arms are heavy
There's Chaucer in her basket already, tales Canterbury
She's nervous, but on the surface she looks blissful and merry to read tomes
But she keeps on forgetting what she came for, the store goes forever
She turns the page and the words just spill out

...

You better lose yourself in the fiction... ♫

Reminds me of 'World's Biggest Bookstore' in downtown Toronto from years ago.

I used to make special trips into the city by bus and subway years ago just to visit and spent hours there.

*sigh* Long since closed.

If you get lost in L Space you need an orangutan to get you out.

I've been to Powell's City of Books in Portland so I'm not impressed.

Powell's Books is a chain of bookstores in Portland, Oregon, and its surrounding metropolitan area. Powell's headquarters, dubbed Powell's City of Books, claims to be the largest independent new and used bookstore in the world.[3] Powell's City of Books is located in the Pearl District on the edge of downtown and occupies a full city block between NW 10th and 11th Avenues and between W. Burnside and NW Couch Streets. It contains over 68,000 square feet (6,300 square metres), about 1.6 acres of retail floor space. In 2016, CNN rated it one of the "coolest" bookstores in the world.[4]

We had a cool bookstore in downtown Sarasota when I was growing up, but like most bookstores, it's long gone now. I remember it being filled with cats, to keep the books company.

My bank account would scream like a deprived junky.

I love The Book Barn in Niantic,CT. A barn full of books, plus multiple outbuildings on the compound, and then... after a quick lunch next door at East Coast Taco, we head further down the road to explore TWO MORE LOCATIONS!

Mrs. Mel and I will make a day of it, bringing a box of books to sell for store credit (they'll usually take about 1/3 of what we bring).

Zeising Brothers in Willimantic Connecticut. They bough a store front before chain book stores or Amazon. Over time they expanded with rooms on upper floors and adjacent buildings. Rough cut pine shelves. Loved that place

There is a place in Columbus Ohio, German Village where I grew up. It is called the Book Loft. It is packed with little rooms full of books, and is great fun to look through. I have spent many hours there.

Hmm, close enough to me for a day trip...
