Queen Anne View reports that there's a third life for Queen Anne Books, after all. It's getting a new name and new owners, but there will definitely be continuity with the old store:
Queen Anne Book Company will open in late February in the old Queen Anne Books location at 1811 Queen Anne Ave N with new owners – Queen Anne residents Judy and Krijn de Jonge, and owner/manager Janis Segress. Segress is returning to the neighborhood after working as head buyer at Eagle Harbor Book Company on Bainbridge Island. Some of the former staff will return, and new staff members will join and help welcome Queen Anne residents back to a community book store.
I can't wait to visit.
