Using C on the UNIX System. Spiral binding...
In those days, going to that store was usually how I found out what titles existed on a particular topic.
I can pretty much always find what I'm looking for there, and if I'm in a hurry, the staff will point me to exactly where it is on the shelves. I still discover new titles I hadn't known about as I'm browsing. And occasionally my browsing leads me to forego a title that really looked good from it's cover, but just wasn't what I needed when I looked inside. Other times I'll find which author of a Java networking book has addressed a problem very similar to something I need to do.
As I look at my bookshelves, I would estimate 85-90% of the books are from Softpro
