    The City of Berkeley's library has a bookstore open 5 days a week in the shopping mall of the Durant parking structure. Them, Revolution Books, and the deli are about the only folks left there sad to say. There was a smoke shop with a great international magazine stand, but they went out of business about two or 3 years ago. Between them and Cody's tanking, magazine stands in Berkeley are pretty mainstream and pedestrian.

    Ah, for the good ol' days...
