Years ago, I went into a book shop on Rt. 1 in Portsmouth, NH. My presence was not welcome and I was informed not to remove any books from the shelves. I looked at the titles (I was looking for Alaska related books), found nothing of interest, at least nothing of enough interest, to bother with.
I was again home visiting my mother in Newburyport, Massachusetts, and was looking to find an issue of Yankee magazine. On other trips, I had noticed that his sign said he had magazines. So, I drove up to Portsmouth, to be greeted with a sign on his door: "This is a limited access store. There is a $5 admission." The $5 may not be correct. It may have been more! Needless to say, I turned around and drove back to Newburyport. Perhaps I should have paid the $5, and hung around for a few hours, but I didn't have the time.
