I Guess I Just Wasn't Made for These Times

It was bound to happen, of course, but it is still a bit of a shock to note that Cody's has closed for good.

Unless I'm mistaken, there is, now and for the first time since just about forever, not a single new book store in Berkeley.

Are there other university towns in that situation? I suppose there must be, but it is a strange thought.

Wow ... I was just in Cody's on Shattuck on Thursday and I didn't see any signs or anything about the impending closure. Huh.

It's not like Berkeley lacks for places to buy new books, though...

If I recall, Ithaca only had used book stores outside of campus. Maybe its a hippie university town thing.
