Globe Corner Bookstore Closing Its Doors

I've sung the praises of the Globe Corner Bookstore in Harvard Square on numerous occasions. It's a great travel bookstore and a local institution. Step inside and in just a few square feet you can travel the world. Sorry to hear the news then that the Globe Corner Bookstore is going to be closing its retail store, although it will live on online. The bookstore was put up for a sale a number of months ago and an acceptable buyer was not able to be found. The announcement came on the same day that Alex Beam of The Boston Globe wrote of the difficult times facing bookstores. Sickeningly prophetic.
