What this town needs is a good newsstand

Amy faced two hours of oral surgery Wednesday afternoon so I headed out in search of a bookstore somewhere near her dentist on Apperson Drive in Salem.

Didn’t find one in the vicinity. Borders, the chain of megastores that flooded Northern Virginia like a plague of locusts when he lived there, hasn’t hit the Roanoke area yet although there two Barnes & Nobles: One at Tanglewood and another in Christiansburg. While I don’t care much for chain stores, Borders has good coffee and a relaxing place to read.
