Virgin Megastore/Strand Books in Union Square

Today I went to a professional meeting at METRO on 57 East 11th Street. I arrived early so I had time to browse the Virgin Megastore which will be closing in 4 days. There was still some stuff left at 70% off the list price. Most of the CDs were from artists unknown to me. I purchased greatest hits CDs from:
  • Herman's Hermits
  • Bob Seger
  • U2

I must comment as I've done several times with regular journal reader Alan Berman that there are so few places left where one can purchase a CD. Most of the kids who buy music these days prefer to download and burn to a CD.

After the meeting a stopped by the famous Strand Book Store on 12th Avenue and Broadway. Bookstores are also becoming dinosaurs since people prefer to purchase from online stores such as I purchased Ron Darling's new book titled The Complete Game: Reflections on Baseball, Pitching and Life on the Mound.
