Fading Bookstores

Tea at Trianon has a post (linked from a Times post, but I like Mrs. Vidal way better than Times, so that's the link you get) on the disappearance of the bookstore from modern America.  I was thinking about posting on this subject myself, but it's a good article, and better-written than my attempt would be.

Oh, and if unlike me you can drive and you actually have some money, please visit the bookstores!  I know that even if my twelve followers militantly supported bookstores it wouldn't do much, but at least you get to enjoy them before they disappear.




*sniff* 
That is one of the saddest sights I've ever seen.

  1. I know! It's so sad! I love to go to bookstores and just look, even if I can't find anything. Just think! All those written words in one place! Boarders is closing! So sad!

Your comments make my day! I read every single one of them, and I'll usually check out my commenters' blogs, if I don't follow them already. I try to reply to my comments, but please don't be offended if I don't make it to yours. Procrastination habits do extend to comment replies, unfortunately.

Of course, courtesy is necessary. I will delete any comments which do not meet my requirements.

Thanks for making the effort to tell me your thoughts!
