I had a nice, compelling, mildly controversial post all ready to go but I spiked it. Bigger news prevails.

The Book Corner, one of my beloved homes away from home, will be closed until further notice. An electrical fire has damaged virtually all our inventory.


Better Days

As I type this, Margaret Taylor sits in her soot-covered, smoke-infused captain’s chair waiting for the insurance adjusters to arrive. She and manager Patty Wong Swei San chased me out of the place for fear I’d inhale the particulate matter still hovering in the air.

No telling how long we’ll be closed. Stayed tuned for further news.

  3. Oh no! I hope insurance covers the costs – but the loss is quite another thing.

    O no. I will donate. I will do a reading for fund raising. Anything.

  5. This makes me really sad. I love the Book Corner!

    I’m so sorry to hear about this. This store is my favorite place for books and cards. I don’t know where I’ll do my Christmas shopping now. As the above poster suggested, I think a go fund me or Kickstarter campaign would be a great idea.
