9:01 PM 10/15/09 · The recession may or may not be over, really depends on who you ask, but its scars run deep. Most noticeably in local businesses that've either bit the big one or are in the process of going the way of the dinosaur.
One particular favorite of mine, which has been circling the drain for awhile now, is Know Knew Books of Palo Alto. They've had 3 going out of business sales that went well enough that they resumed normal operation but now they've got something new in the window.
In huge red letters. Much bigger than that, each letter is about the length of my torso and I'm considerred tall. It's possible that they may recover if they get enough sales, I asked about it inside, but they're not too optimistic this time around.

Okay, their punctuation & sentence structure ain't great.
If you'd be so kind, and have the time, I think you should swing by and buy a lot of stuff. They're a small book store with one of the most impressive scifi sections I've seen in a score of larger chains. Yeah they have other stuff too but that's my chief interest with the place.
