It was a wonderful bookstore with a great reading series and I was able to take B&W photographs of many of the authors;) remember the reopening after the fire! There's lots of waterstones in Uk (they were taken over by wh smith for a while I believe)
Was reminded of Waterstones after attending my local library book sale the other day as well as going through prints of the authors

I, too, do not recall a fire. I do recall that Waterstones shut it down and decided its only American presence would be in airports.

it was a great bookstore in the brief time it was here.

Waterstone's Boston was quite something. I didn't know about the fire; so sorry to hear.
