Another indy bookstore bites the dust

The Afterword posted a depressing piece about the closing of Duthie Books in Vancouver earlier today. This is yet another high-profile independent bookseller who has gone out of business in the last year. (The other closings I'm thinking about are Frog Hollow Books in Halifax and Pages Bookstore and McNally Robinson here in Toronto.)

Mark my words: five years from now the only place to buy books in this country will be online at Amazon or in small Ch-Indi-Coles outlets in malls.
