One does not nostalge about bad stuff, and there is not enough 'good' about the old days for me.
Thought of you yesterday in a country small-city bookshop as I left the counter overhearing phone order by staff " ... there's this author ... Marcel ... Proust? ... and Penguin had a set of 5 ..."

that's all I heard. My friend choked when I suggested 'a madeleine pan with every set sold'.

may I refer you to
'No Eat, No Pray, NO Book Deal' at vanityfair.com website.
the after comments on publishers have amusement waiting for you.
