This is a business with an identity crisis: Is it a used book store or record store? Who cares there are lots of both. Most cassettes and LPs are priced from $2.50 to $4.50; records are the most plentiful (!), mainly in rock n roll. Meanwhile, tons of paperbacks are $1 to $2 each. What makes this store more interesting, for those who bring stuff to trade in, is the option of using trade-in credit for either music or books. There is even a bit of room for wheeling and dealing. Get creative!

The puffin, being a member of the auk family, is also related to the now extinct flightless dodo. The cormorant is a large bird measuring around 36 in. (91 cm) in length, with webbed feet and a long beak with the upper mandible sharp and hooked. It is related to the tropical pelican, Its plumage is black and very dark brown with a green-and-purple sheen but in spring it has a white patch across the thigh, while immature birds are dark brown and whitish underneath the chest. They lay between three and five nearly-white, chalky-coloured eggs in April or May and build their nest of seaweed, sticks, twigs, flotsam and jetsam on rocky cliffs and ridges on the islands. When they dive, both cormorant and shag can sink below the surface without causing a ripple, but their usual habit is to leap up in a semi-circular movement and ‘duck dive’ back down, gaining some momentum for swimming underwater. When travelling fast underwater, the bird keeps its wings folded flat to its body and propels itself simultaneously with strokes of its feet, only using the wings when it searches for fish on the seabed. Both birds usually fly low over the water’s surface but settle onto it before diving for food. The cormorant eats fish of all kinds, including coley, pollack, codling, wrasse, whiting, herring, mackerel, sand eels, plaice and even sticklebacks, but 40% of the cormorant’s main diet is flatfish, with the other favourite being the common eel. Feeding usually takes place in reasonably shallow water, at least compared with members of the auk family, and the cormorant stays down for as long as seventy seconds.
