You know bookstores are still around, right?
Last Sunday morning I arrived at Seminary Co-op Bookstore in Hyde Park a couple of hours before it opened. The Co-op, founded by 17 University of Chicago students in 1961 and beloved by Hyde Park, had spent its 51 years in the cloistered, claustrophobic, labyrinthine basement corridors of the Chicago Theological Seminary, a graystone cathedral on South University Avenue with gothic curves and heavy wooden doors several inches thick.
