A bookstore in Wyoming is bringing its customers back to the dark age, before the soft glow of phones and laptops illuminated everyone's faces.

Wind City Books, a book/coffee shop in Casper, Wyoming, has been getting attention (online, oddly enough) for a sign posted in the front of its shop, telling customers to put their electronics away.

The sign reads:

"We want people to be able to come into this store, relax, enjoy a book — you know, find a book for them that's going to work well, either entertain or inform them," store owner Vicki Burger told KTRK.

While the sign has been getting attention recently, the rule against electronics has been going on for years. Regardless, the internet is still praising the store for going back into the dark ages.
