...stir up all the used bookstore ranting that makes me sad again, but a short interview with Vincent McCaffrey on the subject of Avenue Victor Hugo Books closing in the Boston Globe.

I even wrote my senior thesis on "The Perfect Bookstore," which I claimed should reflect the individual bookseller's personal philosophy and love of books. After graduating, I sold books from a cart in front of the Boston Public Library for a couple of years before opening Avenue Victor Hugo with my wife Thais. Until recently, it was still possible to run the kind of place I originally had in mind -- but sadly, I no longer believe the independent bookstore is a viable business.

Again, he has interesting things to say that are worth thinking about, and it's very, very sad that AVH has left us.
