Amazon is killing Book Depository?! Oh no! 💔 At least we'll always have Half Price Books.

Oh, and I totally feel mourning a person you've never met. When I found out Carrie Fisher passed at the gym, I stopped my treadmill and sat down and cried. It was heartbreaking. I did, later that day, get to cry with my tattoo artist as he tattooed the Star Wars Rebel Alliance symbol on my arm for her.

This is beautiful and I relate so hard to your thoughts on mourning people we've never met. I burst into tears when I found out Joan Didion had died, which sorta took me by surprise at the time but in retrospect makes a kind of sense -- especially when we've spent so much time with a particular person's work!

Joan! :( I have certainly cried over my share of people whose work I have lived inside for a time.
