Steve, of the last ten books you bought, how many were from Amazon (including kindle)? Those of us past a certain age feel great sadness with the disappearance of bookstores, even Barnes and Noble ones, but the reality is they are a dying breed.

Paul B: The last ten book I've purchased have all been from Bookends & Beginnings, Evanston's surviving independent bookstore (including one yesterday). And also the ten before that, and the ten before that.

I do not have a Kindle. I am willing to wait a few days for my books. (I suppose it would be different if I did any extensive travel, in which case a Kindle could be important weight-wise).

Some people no doubt have to rely on Amazon, but we should all patronize bookstores as much as we possibly can.
