Loss of a Book Store

I just received an email that my favorite book store is closing. Next week. It's not an indie book store. We don't have any in my pathetic, deficient town (and yes, I SO wish I could open one.) It's just a small Walden's (owned by Borders) but it's been my go-to store nearly my entire life. Before Border's bought it out, even.

I'm sad - disturbed. Especially since Lindsey Leavitt just posted this week about the closing of an indie store in Las Vegas that she had fallen in love with. How many other book stores are closing across the nation? I find myself having thoughts similar to those Lindsey expressed. Could I have done anything to help? What if I had bought more books? Gone to some of their events? What if I hadn't started ordering all my books from Amazon in the last six months? Why did I do so when I knew the market was shaky and other various box stores were closing and down-sizing left and right?

Convenience.

And now it's too late. This leaves me with one small book store in town (two used.) Sad. I guess I'll put my efforts into keeping our remaining one open.
