OK, Symposia, you don’t have to suck up to Roberts anymore! He’s gone! Take down the sign and some of us will think about shopping there again.

kooky kat

Is this the only place to donate used books? I have a ton of hardbacks and paperbacks, and I don’t know why I am holding onto them (or the bookshelf taking up room!) 🙂


Stand tramp,

Ydych chi wedi pleidleisio yn yr etholiad?


i would patronize this bookstore more if they’d take down the Dave Roberts bl*wjob poster in the front. (The one in the photo above has been replaced with a smaller one, but STILL). I mean, who actually thanks their landlord so publicly and actually MEANS IT? The only landlord worth thanking is the one that rents a space out FOR FREE. So if someone wants to tell me that Symposia pays NO RENT, then I can stomach the sign and will gladly shop there again. It just looks like they are prostituting themselves in the WORST WAY which is why its impossible for me to go in there.
But don’t get me wrong I do love used books, but this store’s windows take USED to a whole new level!


Yes, but how do you say that about frat boys? (not all frat boys just the ones that can’t drink and think).
