Some times the atmosphere in smaller used bookstores are quiet and at times a little dusty, but there is a nostalgic aura surrounding them as well. Some of these tiny off the wall used bookstores have used books that are neatly shelved and organized, but as you walk into the door you notice the quietness inside. Your feet slowly ascend and the floor creaks with each step that your body takes, bringing the books alive with the acknowledgment of your presence. With the fluorescent lighting flickering bright and dim the books begin screaming out to you, "Take me! Take me!"
