The geography of subway maps is constantly changing.

Just like the evolution of words. (Thanks for inventing pop music, George Eliot.)

Even the tried and true obituary occasionally gets a chance to get creative.

The same goes for fuddy duddy old textbooks, who are raised into cities.

Can the same be done to used books during this digital renaissance?

We could say that it'll only get worse, but where's the fun in that?

Afterall, you have to fight for your right to stay optimistic.

It's the kind of sentiment that most mothers everywhere would encourage.
