The Death of a Bookstore

Anyone able to give the kiss of life in Evanston, Illinois – see Words and Peace

That is tragic but all too common nowadays. I guess if second hand bookshops don’t pay they don’t stay open. In England they have been driven out by charity shoops where people donate their old books and the shops sell them for charity for next to nothing. A worthwhile cause but it kills off second-hand bookshops. Buying on the Internet has also had an effect, of course.
