Melville House Books » Good news/bad news: B&N expands its non-book business

I am concerned. Hopefully some independent BOOKstores will make it through the changes in the industry and help fill in the gap.

I love to have options. There are some books I want to read electronically, and some I want to read in print. Hopefully print will still be available, at least from an online store, if not in real life.

I remember the days before the huge bookstores, when the (comparatively tiny) Waldenbooks and the library were magical because I was surrounded by books. Then the huge bookstores came along.

Now, they have to change or perish, and it seems I'll be lucky to have something the size of Waldenbooks stocking paper books.
