Hell man, I'd be grateful for a Mom and Pop Bookstore right now. But then again, that wouldn't offer much in the way of options. So, bring on the Big Chain Amazon Bookstore!!!!! Gimme!!

I just got an email this morning alerting me to the fact that the Amazon Bookstore just opened at UTC. I didn't even know this was in the works. I'm stoked. I want to go check this out. Meantime, here's some other guys Tour of their version in their city.

I've heard bits and pieces they were doing this.


I'd like one to come to my town.

On my walk to the Library this morning, I passed by a new store location and saw that we now have a Comic Book Store. This is the first Comic Book store we have had in my town in well over 20 years. The last time we had one, it was during the Image Comics explosion. It went belly up when the Valiant Comics line itself went belly up. So, it's cool we have one again, but not sure what's inside as it was closed. Rising Sun Comics is the name and everything in the window was Manga related. So, not sure if this is a niche comic book store given the name on the front. But if this doesn't have all things Comics, this store is going to fade fast. Looking into the window, it looks to be a decent size floor space to hold lots (i.e. all American Comics as well as Manga stuff). I will go back down later to see what they have. Would like to see Action Figures, Figurines included.
