Capital Gazette wins special Pulitzer Prize citation for coverage of newsroom shooting that killed five

The Book Thing

Russell Wattenberg, 43, of Charles Village, is the burly, bearded proprietor of The Book Thing, a 15-year-old, Waverly-based business that is open only on weekends, but including Christmas, Easter, Armageddon and the Rapture, if they fall on a Saturday or Sunday, according to a posted sign. At The Book Thing, little money changes hands. The premise is simple: Bring in as many books as you want and and take out as many as you want.
