Hail and farewell, yet another independent shop is in dire straits.
I've never heard of this bookstore in Ann Arbor Michigan, but the comments section makes me wonder yet again if something more fundamental is at work in some bookstores.
The comments page expresses lament for a local shop gone in an internet age etc,. but there's a high number of entries that put the bead on a chilly staff or a feeling of unease from the place.
This is something that comes up again and again in these circumstances, and I'll never understand it.
So if there's anybody out there who has ever been put off by a bookstore, I'd like to hear about it. Even if it was us.
