One of my favorite computer stores during that time (in Barberton, Ohio) was called The Magic One Computer shop. That place had loads of computers, software, and magazines dedicated to the Atari.
I would frequently visit the store usually once a week or so to stockpile up on Atari products, such as a disk drive, floppy disks (full of games), and so much more.
Eventually the store owner came over and stated “That’s enough books. You are going to have to leave”, and escorted me out physically. That was the type of generation it was before Barnes and Noble made reading in stores a mainstream activity and respect of customers a high priority. Such is the life of an Atari 8 Bit Programmer!
