Walked up to the nearest used bookstore -- closed.

recessio, onis, f., a going back, receding, recession

If recession really meant "a going back" that wouldn't be so bad, because previously the store was at a different location. But I fear it's just gone. I wonder what will open in that fairly attractive merchant location. Probably another "Dollar tree." I am sure someone will figure out a way to make money in this unfortunate situation.

In order to recession-proof another bookstore nearby, the one that deals in new titles, I went there immediately and bought a book: The Worst-Case Scenario Almanac: History. I don't mean that everybody should do the same, but if you hope for small booksellers to survive... They were having a bad time as it is, and let's face it: bookstores are fun. The more, the merrier. Let's keep them afloat.
