Come summer time, West Roxbury will be without two local bookstores. 

Pazzo Books, located at 1898 Centre St., is set to close this month, and currently is offering an "everything must go" sale, according to the shop's website

As part of the sale, patrons can purchase hardcover books for $2, paperbacks for $1 and 50 cents for and purchase prints, engravings and other similar items for 75 percent off. 

The store also plans to sell its book cases once they are empty. 

The store is currently open Wednesday-Saturday. Everything left at the middle of the month will "be sent to a nice farm in Western Mass.," according to the shop's website

Owner Tom Nealon will close the shop to concentrate on rare books as well as continuing to write about the funny ways that books and food intersect at hilobrow.com, according to the Pazzo website.

Tom and brother Brian Nealon opened the shop in 2003 in Roslindale Square before eventually moving to its current location on Centre Street in West Roxbury. Brian later left to work at the used books social venture More than Words in 2010, leaving Tom to run the store. 

Last month, Seek Books on 1747 Centre St., which focuses on vintage science-fiction books, announced that it is also preparing to close its doors

It often happens that an event is described, or a closing is announced, and the address is "Millennium Park," or "Centre Street." Just another few words or numbers would be helpful in articles like these.

Hi Fran, thanks for the note. I've added the addresses in here and will look to add more detail in that regard in future posts. Hope that helps - thanks again!
