The Davis Enterprise featured Logos Book’s opening in Davis.
Our excerpt below:
■ A used bookstore will soon move into the former Aquarius space, at 513 Second St. Peter and Susan Linz plan to open Logos Books by mid-February. (Logos means “word” in Greek.) This will be the second used bookstore in town. The other one is Sweet Briar Books, at 654 G St. Bogey’s Books offered new and used books before it closed at the end of 2007. Peter, a UC Davis emeritus professor of math and com- puter science, has run a used book business online for the past 10 years, selling items on Web sites like Amazon.com.
Susan said her husband specializes in nonfiction, scholarly and out-of-print books in areas such as math, engineering and physics. However, the store will offer a broader selection including contemporary fiction and children’s books. Susan said of her husband: “Having been a professor, he really believes in reading. He loves going into bookstores and discovering a book.” “He hopes he can offer that experience to other people,” she said.
After covering their costs, profits will go to two charities: Save the Children and Doctors Without Borders, Susan said. “We really are hoping this is going to be a bright spot for people,” said Susan, who envisions people strolling across the street to peruse the books after enjoying a coffee at Mishka’s Cafe.
