Bookstores: Are they Dying?


Living bookstores or online ones?
Quiz any book love with this question, and there hands will go high up for bookstores. But the irony is, most of us have actually put online stores on the heavier side. 
Is that like being mean to the bookstores of our city? Well, not exactly.

For more on this, read on my views here:

  1. I read the article, I think it's redundant to say that I love bookstores but honestly, I am not going to make an effort to buy books only for this reason of them becoming extinct (at least as of now). I really want them to come up with ways to lure us, because the discounts at e-commerce websites are too damn high! :/

    1. You are right there. Lack of such things is what is pushing us more towards online stores. And now it seems almost impossible to get back there :/

  3. You just made me feel guilty. I agree. I am buying more books on Amazon than from Bookstores. But hey, I read and get more books from the libraries than I get from Amazon, so that's good. Right?
    Read your post on The Baked Beans, but thought of commenting here.

    1. That's much more than good, and you are so lucky! We don't even have such libraries here.

      Thanks for the feedback :)
