Abstract

For Christmas this year, my university is closing the campus bookstore. Astoundingly, given the significance of the event and the impending arrival of the festive season, this is not general knowledge among academic staff. Most of my colleagues, still stuck under an avalanche of marking, have not yet learned that by the time they emerge, Omnia Books will only exist in the archive. Indeed, I only found out by accident, when, last month, I purchased a tin of body glitter and a permanent marker (which is another story).
