                           I just read a great article on Aljazeer News about Paris,
                    Independent bookstores, E Books, Amazon. Independent book
                    stores are surviving better than in the USA, read on...

                      Will our small bookstores survive ? I do know I've read a few
                      days ago Barnes & Knoble is about to go under. Looks like
                      theirs not many places to go for a book?

                                                       Joe....

Amazon has won. All my publishers tell me the bulk of their sales are through Amazon. This includes textbooks. College bookstores are going under right after Barnes and Noble (which, yes, is having trouble).

Paper sales still outweigh my publishers' electronic sales, though, for trade books as well as textbooks.
