Every 5 years or so leases are due on queen street, and everyone moves farther west. I've been living around queen since 1980, and it just keeps happening. The problem is that bookstores and cool old places move, and are replaced by GAP and chain stores. A favourite bookstore is closing (or perhaps moving, they hint) and have been having a 50% off sale for 2 months. I missed getting one book I wanted, but I got some fun stuff:
Tales of the Alhambra - washington irving (great illustrations)
Frogs in a well: indian women in purdah (thinking of juliaD)
Dracula: Everything you always wanted... blaa blaa (nice pictures)
Cities of the Red Night - W. S. Burroughs (first edition)
Running Wild - J.G. Ballard (First)
Queen of the Damned - Rice (First)
Merrick - Rice (First, and one of her few really readable books)
Anne Rice biography - Katherine Ramsland
Understanding Arabs: A Guide for Westerners (interesting, and pre-9/11)

My dracula, ballard and Burroughs collections are coming along nicely.
