I became convinced today once more that for some goods, internet shopping is definitely the way to go. Around noon, I headed into the only big bookstore we have here in Utrecht, to finally buy a replacement copy of 'L.A. Confidential'. Getting there already meant nearly losing my life three times trying to maneuver my bike through the perenially under-construction roads that lead to the inner city, and then taking another 15 minutes to get through the crowd from the place where I'd parked my bike to the actual store. Then when I got to the store, simply getting to the crime section was another monumental effort (despite it being almost right next to the entrance), and then it turned out they didn't have any copies left. An hour later, Amazon offered me four different versions of the book, and I even found out the screenplay of the film is also for sale. Big brick-and-mortar stores just lost another client to the net for good.
