Another one bites the dust

I don’t believe it.

The American Book Centre in Leuven is closing – on Saturday. For good.

That’s the second of my favourite bookshops to close this year. (And I understand there have been a couple of prominent casualties in Dublin.) What a bummer.

OK, Belgian folks, get into Leuven as quickly as you can in the next few days and buy up the remaining stock. I think this must have been a really sudden decision. I guessed things were not going well when they closed the upstairs section and moved the bargain books downstairs, but still I hoped they might keep going a bit longer.

  1. I’ve never been quite sure if the Shinners realise just how unimpressive Adams is to the unconverted!
