Los Angeles Times: “This is the paradox of modern bookselling. Even in an entertainment-saturated age, people still buy books. But the casual reader has many other places to get bestsellers and topical books, from warehouse stores to the mall. Meanwhile, book nuts — the ones who simply must buy several volumes a week — are lured online. Few businesses can survive that lose customers from both ends of the spectrum.”

  1. This is pretty interesting. Buzbee worked in the same bookstore I did–Printers Inc. in Palo Alto. I used ‘Search Inside the Book’ for his book on Amazon (ironically enough) and found him mentioning a lot of people I knew who worked there–Sumac and Gerry (the owners), Greta. Didn’t know him, though, sounds like he left before my time.
