Time seemed not to matter inside the windowless building; the World’s Biggest was never a place to go if you only had 10 minutes to pick something up. You could do that of course, but rushing missed the point of the place: the happenstance discovery of books we didn’t now we needed.

Pictured: Two books I didn’t know existed (or that I needed) found last night at BMV on Edward Street next to the now demolished World’s Biggest.

Now you walk in Paris alone among the crowd
Herds of bellowing buses hemming you about
Anguish of love parching you within
As though you were never to be loved again

Guillaume Apollinaire Zone trans. Samuel Beckett
