It's getting into the thick of the retail relay race, and as such I haven't been around much.
Mostly because the news makes me depressed.
Before I got started here ABE was a new window onto the world, specifically the whole modern first edition racket.
For a few years at least it was a fine racket indeed, and the Advanced Book Exchange was the place to be for buyers and sellers. It ended up in Amazon's hands yesterday, after the sale becoming public a few months back.
I've felt middle aged for awhile now, this just confirms it's not a passing thing.
