One of my favorite San Francisco indie bookstores is in trouble. A Clean, Well-Lighted Place for Books is now up for sale. Owner Neal Sofman cites declining sales and lousy foot traffic. This also explains why Sofman withdrew the highly lucrative domian name bookstore.com, which I had mistakenly reported as “hijacked” last week. (Thanks to Dan Wickett for the head’s up on this.)
