The Dartmouth College Bookstore is closing and that literally hits home for me. I grew up in New Hampshire and I spent many hours in this store both before and after Barnes and Noble owned it. It would not surprise anyone that as an independent bookstore it was better than as part of a chain, but even as a chain store it remained a place where you could go and spend a few hours browsing and discovering books. Without this store Hanover will be a less interesting town. I hope another independent shop will find its way there but there will never be another DCB.
