"Water is no friend to a book." Chris Bowe, Longfellow Books
During the blizzard this weekend, a window in the floor above the store blew open overnight. The pipes froze and set the sprinkler system off. Then all hell broke loose.
When I watch the video, I see the pain on Chris' face. I can't know the extent of his pain, because these aren't just books he loves, this is his livelihood. I know that I would have terrible grief for my books if we had a horrible incident at our home.
This absolutely breaks my heart. It's one of my favorite haunts on a lunchtime walk.
I'm still a very loyal customer!
Longfellow Books, Resurgam!
