Any book store that has almost an entire shelf dedicated to Kierkegaard, is definitely somewhere you (well OK, I at least) want to stay and browse for a credit-card-screamingly-long-time. And as an added bonus they had the paperback version of one of my all-time favourite books ‘The Loom of Language’ written by Frederick Bodmer in 1942.
Whilst I decided I wouldn’t have time to indulge myself interest in Danish philosophers, I did manage to load up on many excellent books before my jet-lagged Korean friend decided we should leave. It was probably for the best, having spent almost 300 USD in little under an hour!
I understand Jost Zetzsche and Nataly Kelly will be having at signing at the Harvard Coop of their forth coming book, “Found in Translation: How Language Shapes Our Lives and Transforms the World” – how cool is that!
BTW I learnt that coop is pronounced with a hard ‘c’ like a ‘k’ and the ‘oop’ is like the ‘oup’ in ‘soup’. Everyday is a school, especially in Cambridge, MA.
