nashvols. You make a good point regarding the generational thing. I imagine this bookstore may be able to do well for a limited time (10 to 20 years) by filling a niche market, holding book signings, etc.

Makes me sad. By the time I am 80 no one will have heard of a bookstore!!

Oh they'll know of it...the same way we know about black and white TVs and analog electronics, carriages, and other things.

Who knows...maybe someday some high schooler will interview you about what life was like when you didn't download all of your media.

I was at the Apple store yesterday and looked at their new "Air" laptop. I asked the young Apple Genius if it didn't annoy people that they couldn't pop in a DVD or a CD . . . as it has no slot for it.

And he said that the trend is away from discs. That EVERYTHING will be in the 'cloud' . . all your music, movies, photos . . . the only plus side is that moving will be easier.

BUT I am not letting go of my books and they are about the only thing I spend money on anymore.

A fried of mine, even older than me, has a Kindle and LOVES it. I'm am NOT going to curl up with a Kindle on a rainy day.

Looking forward to the opening of this bookstore. I spend a lot of time at the Barnes & Noble at Cool Springs. I go there to relax among friends (who happen to be books!)
