While I was at my parents' house briefly yesterday, my mom showed me this article
in the Howard County Times
. It seems that Junior Editions will be closing in January. This is incredibly sad. For those not in the know- Junior Editions is (soon "was") a small independent children's bookstore at the Columbia Mall. It is cute and the people are always friendly and I've found some lovely things there, just by browsing around. If I am looking for a specific children's book, I'll look there first. And if they don't have it, I'll ask them to order it for me. Not any more, I guess.
