In a sad series of events, the Calgary store will close on August 1st, 2008. It has been a labour of love for many over the years but economics have conspired against it and it is now time to move on.
The store will continue to function as usual for as long as it possibly can. The Calgary staff have promised to remain until the end.
I especially wish to thank the staff in Calgary who have been as motivated and kindhearted a group as one could ever hope for.

The books, beginning with four titles for the Spring 2008 season, are printed on recycled paper with organic vegetable dyes, no dust jackets, and will have a 52% smaller carbon footprint than a regular DK title.
Small steps count; this is a revolutionary one.
Andrew Keen believes that all of those bloggers out there are ruining our civilization. And he has a point: the internet is a place where lies, plagiarism and piracy are rampant. Our creative communities are worse off for it--they are no longer being paid for the work that they do. Our traditional media and arts institutions are suffering. Mr. Keen wishes to celebrate and revere the lowly fact checker who spreads truth and credit where it is so badly needed. Our artists, editors, musicians and writers are being undermined by resume-less amateurs who work well as a compliment to traditional media but cannot provide the whole.Categories: Reviews, Staff Pick
