BookWoman: another endangered local institution

If everyone who cares about the continued existence of BookWoman would spend some dollars there before the end of the month, it may make it through the sales drought that ensues when so many students leave town, made much, much worse this year by the chaos caused by the roadwork on Lamar. I remember when it was located in a house near campus, under another name, and then when it was an oasis on Sixth Street. If you're not a reader yourself, just remember that BookWoman represents a quarter-century of service to the Austin community and you can always buy some music, something for a child, a greeting card, a post card, a T-shirt, or deck of Bush-administration cards. Grok Books still exists in the form of BookPeople, but Europa, Garner & Smith, Congress Avenue, and Watson & Co. are among those no longer with us. Don't let BookWoman join this list.
