The Harvard Square Association held its Bookish Ball to celebrate “a place of books and bookstores, of public learning and public discourse, of important anniversaries and as a community that treasures the printed word.” Meanwhile, readers in India faced the possibility of a shrinking media market due to inflating paper prices.

The U.S. military finished up its bloodiest week in Iraq year-to-date. Flowers were found to be slowly losing their fragrance.
