Tough Times, Similar Requests from Two Long Standing Businesses - By Mike Glasser

Tough Times, Similar Requests from Two Long Standing Businesses  - By Mike Glasser I have an affinity for nearly all types of bookstores – even large corporate book peddlers such as Barnes & Noble or Borders. I love entering these places and simply browsing the shelves, and invariably I’ll end up purchasing a book or a magazine. On rare occasions I actually read the publication. But consider the penultimate form of book lover’s experience: the independent (aka “used”) bookstore. According to Matt, one of the owner’s of Armadillo’s Pillow at 6753 North Sheridan, Rogers Park used to have four independent book stores. Tragically, through the advent of technology and a change in people’s tastes, independent bookstores are less busy. Many are closing. That is sad. Read Mike's entire blog post here
