Marseille is a great place for used bookstores, even worse (or better,
depending on the point of view) than Toulon. I had serious diffiiculty to
fasten my suitcase and now that I'm back home, I have greater difficulty to
find some remaining place on my shelves to range my finds. Rarely in my
bookaholic's life did I buy so much books in so brief a lapse of time.

Gee, I wish we still had this sort of market in New York. The old second-hand bookstore row on 4th Avenue died years ago when the yuppies moved in and converted the buildings to condominiums and rented out the old book store ground floors to fast-food outlets and blue-jeans emporiums and hair-dressers and laundries.
