This bears watching. Although I've never been there, I've purchased from Newtonville Books and have gotten their newsletters for years. They're routinely acknowledged as one of Boston's best bookstores and it looks like Tim is selling the shop to a former employee.
The key graf from Boston.com reads:
"I think it's safe to say this is a wake-up call for anyone who would be sorry to see Newtonville Books go out of business. If you want it to survive, you have to patronize it."
Uh, we're fine and everything, but that's true of all independent bookstores.
We love you all.
