I just received an email noting that the Harvard Book Store is for sale. I know that online book sales has limited the ability for book stores to succeed, but I personally think that Harvard Book Store is the best in the world. I hope this sale doesn’t affect its standing.
I might lapse from existence this weekend, thanks to St. Patrick’s Day 2002. You’ll find me at the oldest St. Pat’s parade in existence (first in 1737, annually since 1901), in the heart of historic South boston.
