I like the independent bookstore. They do tend to try and get to know you and work with you on your interests. Wish I could find one closer to me. I hit the jackpot with the bookstore in Warwick, NY. They had lots of horror non-fiction books and I walked out with an bagful of great reading.


The big box stores are feeling the crunch because they offer neither the broad selection of online services (they can't - the rules of space time forbid it) nor are they nimble enough to meet the needs of individual customers. Add that to the huge cost of all their rental overhead and you're looking at a passing paradigm.

What you need to find is a small local store that will actually learn who you are as a regular and start catering to your needs. Small local indies are to the big boxes what the nondescript rodent-like animal was to the dinosaurs.
