Bookshops are closing. Hurrah
I know someone who will not like This Story from The Gaurdian on small bookshops in Britain. The author says the reason so many of them are closing is they can\'t provide the service big stores can, and they deserve to go out of business. Independent book retailers in Britain has fallen from 1,894 to 1,699 since 1995.
He says \"The amazing fact is not that 10% have closed, but that 90% have stayed open.\"
