Afterwords will leave a void in my heart

Originally uploaded by argusmaniac.
I found out last night via Kate's blog that my favorite Ann Arbor bookstore, Afterwords, will close at the end of the month.

That's really sad news. It's the one bookstore in Ann Arbor where I have found so many bargains -- whether it was a book on gardening, insects, or photography. I have been going there for nearly as long as I have lived here -- nearly 25 years. I'm not sure when AW opened, but I suppose in the retail scheme of things, they have lasted a lot longer on Main street than many other stores. That still doesn't make it any easier to take. I will certainly miss buying photography books there that I usually don't see elsewhere.

Sorry for your loss. I have not ever been to that part of the country, but a good bookstore is a treasure.
