Will Bookstores Come Back?

Only people who have never had a conversation with me would not know my feelings about books; paper books, that is. I don't care what anyone says, ebooks are not books, they are digitized manuscripts. (I bet that comment makes me lots of friends.)

This book was published in 1848. That's a book!

I'm fairly certain that an ebook won't last 158 years. Just saying...

Here is another of my treasured books to share with you. This was my mother's book of Bryant's Poems. I loved this book during my teen-aged-poetry stage.

And this little book of essays was published in 1907.

The copyright is on the front cover...I hope you can see it. I can click on the picture to make it larger. Can you?

Back to my point. Amazon is opening a physical bookstore in Seattle, Washington, on November 3rd -- yes! It is a bit ironic that the online book seller that helped fuel the end to many bookstores has brought the industry full circle.
