Yikes. As part of an effort to cut $30 million from its 2010 budget, the California Institute of Technology is “eliminating books from the bookstore,” as Campus Marketplace put it. The Caltech Bookstore is being merged with the campus convenience store and will be known as the Caltech Store. The new store will sell clothing, food and logo items. The only books available will be by Cal Tech authors.

Texts will be sold online; the staff of the store is creating a site that it hopes will link easily to a campus-wide program that is used regularly by faculty and students.

About Belleza

I got the name Bella because my grandfather called me Suzabell. I use that as a username and my friends on the site started calling me Bella. Thus was born: Bella Foxx's Life, now known as "just a city girl" since I have made the big jump from the country and am now living in the City, UES. I like to make jewelry (check out my blog "Bella is creative" started April 17, 2008) and write. I like to do cross stitch and knit. I sew, I don't really enjoy it, but I enjoy the clothes. I like to read the Bible, books, magazines, online newspaper articles, blogs, jokes on candy wrappers, ads on the subway, billboards, backs of food boxes, lists of ingredients and recipes, cleaning directions, sayings on shirts. I post my reviews on "Just a girl, living, reading, watching, and writing", on Shelfari, Library Thing and Goodreads.. I am allergic to practically everything: grass, trees, weeds, animal dander, dust, mold, wheat, apples, nuts, fish and coconut. The fish and coconut are so serious I carry an Epi-pen and wear a Medic-Alert bracelet. And last but not least. I love the Yankees.
