A Wyoming bookstore is banning electronics and encouraging customers to "live like it's 1993." (KTRK)

Forget partying like it's 1999, a Wyoming bookstore wants customers to live like it's 1993: sans personal electronics.

Owner Vicki Burger has banned Wi-Fi and electronics in her bookstore, Wind City Books, in an attempt to get customers to actually read books (imagine that!), reports KTWO-TV.

A sign posted on her storefront asks customers to leaver their cell phones and computers in their bags as they enter "a place for books."

"Take a break. Live like it's 1993. Emails can wait," the sign reads.

According to Burger, customers have wholeheartedly embraced her rules, saying the bookstore is an oasis of peace and quiet.
