"used" bookstore

"used" here does not imply that the previous owner actually read said books. That would be ridiculous. Thanks, Dave.

And don't the quotes really belong around "official"? What's "official" about it? Did the Used Book Society get together and name it the Official Store of Used Books, the way Gatorade is the Official Sports Drink of Major League Baseball? That's one of the odder signs I've seen on here.

Coincidentally, I just learned an hour ago that "Bevo" was a brand of near-beer in the Prohibition Era.

Bevo is the mascot for The University of Texas Longhorns. This sign is from the Austin Community College book store near the university campus.
