Cody's Books closes its doors after 52 years.

Now this is sad news. Berkeley will certainly never be the same without this extraordinary bookstore.

Surely a sign of the Apocalypse. I loved Cody's on Telegraph and figured it would be around for eternity. I don't think I ever went to any of the other three. Now that I live in the 'burbs, I don't get there as much as I'd like to. This is truly sad news.

Off-topic (as, alas, Cody's is well outside my sphere of easy travel), but I Can Has Cheezburger has summed up your issues with finding an apartment:

Argh! I spent so much time (and money) there! Next you'll tell me Green Apple in SF is closed.

One of the things that is really a drag about living in small town Maine is that I can't spend the entire weekend (and I really used to do this) walking or bus-hopping from bookstore to bookstore and coffee shop to coffee shop.
