Outings to Tattered Corners Tattered Corners New and Used Bookstore have been a ritual for my granddaughter and me, so I was glad to see a column recently, “Why Brick and Mortar Bookstores Matter.”

Our Saturday visits follow a ritual. She heads back to the children’s section; I pick out something new for myself and then join her to sit and read while she spends an hour or more making her selections. Sometimes we add a stop at the Gospel Book and Supply Store or the library — when you could. Then we’re off to Pizza Villa; ice cream for her, a couple of slices for me. She gets to know her new book friends, I read a few pages of my new paperback. It’s always about the books first. Once when she asked me if we could go that day, I replied, “Weren’t you just there a few days ago with your Mom?" Her response: “Well, Grandpa, you know you can never have too many books.”

While I’m at it: It’s good to see Pittsburgh’s Salena Zito added to the opinion page, and the column “How much ‘living’ are our seniors getting?” was spot on.
