Waterstones Piccadilly- Like Amazon but you can walk around

Spent a couple of lovely hours on Saturday wandering around the Waterstones inPiccadilly. I guess in the not to distant future it will go the way of the once grand HMV in that part of the world, but while it exists enjoy it. It's scale allows one to get immersed in a department, drenched in biography, travel or crime.
Some of the sub genres are odd - 'Cosy Crime.' An there is this strange ghetto section that puts GLBT, Erotic and Black fiction together. I am not sure exactly what the thought process was there.

While I used to find Foyles often bewildering there is something kind of ordered and reassuring here.
