Richard Fitzpatrick Books

Another chapter comes to a close for Ottawa bookseller, Richard Fitzpatrick. After seventeen years in the business, he is closing his (recently re-opened) bookstore for good. Well, there's always hope of him opening up for business again, but he says he will be taking a little break for the time being. He wants to close out the store ASAP (end of June) He also tells me that if you bring in a liquor store cardboard box he will give away a free paperback for each one. Currently the sale is 50% off all books.

As ususal, I was able to pick up / rescue some more choice books today and came across some early NASA books he had in his window. I will put these up for sale on eBay (link coming soon) and the proceeds will go to Richard Fitzpatrick.
