Just take the speed and read, Batman, it's not that hard.

bookstores are a chill hangout with friends when it's a weekday

actually met a girl I dated and the friend group emboldened me to talk to her

another time I met one of my best friends at an anarchist bookstore

this was back when I lived in California and had friends though

I met lots of really cool people at an anarchist book store collective space in Portland

That’s also where I got involved with food not bombs and critical mass

Who would've thought that your comment could be so controversial ? Although there have been a few happy exceptions in my life, I basically agree with DMcC, that browsing in a bookshop feels more natural when done alone. In company, I usually end up worrying about what book might be of mutual interest, etc.

In company, sitting down over coffee is always a pleasure, although for me, going for a stroll is an even better option. The movement and slowly evolving scenery is very conducive to a conversation that can be intimate, that can comfortably lapse, or that can lurch off in an unexpected direction.

@DWV : yeah, I had some doubts about the motivation behind posting a selfie, but then my craving for attention got the better of me

^ Brilliant!
afaik WWWP and me have been talking about a different kind of bookstore. You've even managed to make DMcC look like some naive innocent - and that's not an easy thing to achieve

I often browse bookstores in company, but for me that means each going their own way, and when you meet up you discuss the books you found. I think that's a nice middle ground between going solo and being social.
To me concerts are an occasion which many people whom I know view as social, but which I prefer to experience alone
