  •  Thanks for this diary! I'm still mourning the (9+ / 0-)

    passing of the indie bookstore I Love A Mystery more than a  year ago.  Not only could I buy books I enjoyed but I could read them there, drink coffee, and talk about them with others of what amounted to a "club."  First Borders and Barnes & Noble have an eternal account to settle for their overwhelming of the indies, and then Amazon should roast forever in Corporate Hell for completing the destruction.

    I am,  however, encouraged by the occasional news item about indie bookstores becoming reestablished in communities.  Encouraged, but not confident.

    Thanks again!
