Very Sad News

Cody's Books has closed. First the Telegraph Avenue store (where I spent way too much of my grad school stipends) closed. Now it is all gone.

I know that it's tough for independent bookstores, but they are so much more satisfying than on-line shopping. I never went into Cody's without seeing something that I didn't know existed. As detrimental as that serendipity could be to my budget, I don't like to see it lost.
