"Immersion in the life of the world, a willingness to be inhabited by and to speak for others, including those beyond the realm of the human, these are the practices not just of the bodhisattva but of the writer." --Jane Hirshfield

Another indie bookstore

Micawber Books, in Princeton, NJ, is the latest casualty of... what? The Internet? Bigger bookstores? Books sold at Target? The pace of American life? The former owner says that even his employees prefer gossip about TV shows to book talk. Read the NY Times article.

At least this one was purchased by Princeton University, and will be maintained as a bookstore.
