    bookman, RIP

    Postby distrans » 14 Mar 2018 08:36

    my local used books is going out of business in a few weeks,
    they've been open for 30 years and ive been a customer all that time

    the rent did them in. the owners were both working second jobs to cover the bills but they say their revenues have fallen 50% following the kindles introduction.

    never thought of myself of a book burner but I look at all of brians books on the shelf there and am tempted to buy em just to toss em


    is the one he co-authored with his father worth the read?

    never picked it up before

    It's a shame when an independent bookshop, new or second hand, closes. I have a kindle, but only use it when I travel. Even then I manage to take one or two books along.

    I never read the book by Frank and Bobo, so I can't help you there.
