All of the small bookstores in our area are either bankrupt or going out of business.
My buddy's bookstore in Camden Maine was broke when he died three years ago. The new owners finished it off.
A brand new Super-Walmart will open in about three weeks on US Route 1 in Thomaston. So it's only a matter of time for the two other small book stores to close.
Although Hello Hello Books will probably make it...it's almost a kiosk...so it's safe. Do me a favor and consider buying a book there just for the fun of it.
I wish I could buy banned, forbidden, dangerous, and forced out of print books locally like those offered n Loompanics, Tools for Freedom.com and Paladin Press.
