So much to blog about, not enough time!! Today I read this terrible piece of news about Cody's Books on Telegraph closing down. I can't imagine Berkeley without Cody's. I have spent so much time there, not to mention money. Cody's always has what I'm looking for, and often several things I wasn't looking for. Their art books...their YA section...their sci-fi and fantasy section...everything. The place is a treasure trove. Magazines I've never seen anywhere else. The official Book Lust book journal, which I bought for a librarian friend. (We also bought her the librarian action figure.) Now I'll never get to do a reading there--one of the little literary pipe dreams in the back of my mind has gone up in smoke, as it were. Farewell old friend.
