P.S. It's Gone

Bailey-Coy is closing and my heart cracks a little more. The wit of their windows and the beauty of their selections can never be replaced. So many years of bookselling history, gone--"All changed, changed utterly." Stars are burning out and will be missed by people who loved to walk in starlight.

Will somebody please tell Michael Wells that I love him?

This just made me sick to my stomach. The world is falling apart.

I blame myself. I mean, I'm sure I represented a significant part of their sales, and when I left Seattle, it was just a matter of time.

So sad. Such a good place, it was.

Kim, our world is falling apart--other people are just fine with Tweets and Kindles and downloads and all that jazz.
