Cupid's Pulse Article: How To Have An Extraordinary Date At The BookstoreCupid's Pulse Article: How To Have An Extraordinary Date At The Bookstore

I hate to be Debbie Downer, but at the rate brick and mortar book stores are closing, I don’t know how much longer this awesome date venue will be available. Doesn’t it feel like just yesterday that there was all the uproar about how the mega-book stores were killing off the mom and pop book shops?  Remember the movie You’ve Got Mail and how disgusted you were when Joe Fox’s (Tom Hanks) Fox Books forced Kathleen Kelly’s (Meg Ryan) Little Shop Around the Corner out of business?
