Time Warp in a Bookstore

CAPPMomsToday I was able to stop by our last, local indie bookstore. It is a family-owned and run business. They sell all the usual bestsellers, classics, exam review books...and a few hidden gems.

Today I found a copy of Barbara Pym's "The Sweet Dove Died" in the Harper Trophy paperback edition. This is the same one I have. I bought it in the early 80's. This one was yellowed and marked "$3.95".

There was no bar code on it.

This book has to have been sitting there for over 20 years. When did bar codes come in, anyway?
