Makes one think of the wonderful Arnold Lobel children’s poem that begins, “Books to the ceiling, books to the sky. My piles of books are a mile high.” One makes one’s way gingerly through this cluttered shop of used and rare treasures. Comic and record collectors have made some very special finds here, but mostly it’s books (on many topics) that abound. In the world of the book megastore, Cliff’s is a welcome anachronism.
