“Bookstores are Struggling, Reading is Surviving”

That’s the headline of an article by Lindsay Oberst posted to today’s Midtown Patch.

Lindsay examines the local particulars of two related nationwide trends: the closing of more and more brick-and-mortar bookstores (including, most recently, the bankruptcy of the giant Borders chain), and the increasing popularity among Americans for reading their books on computer screens.

If you live in one of Atlanta’s intown neighborhoods and haven’t already signed up to get the Midtown Patch’s daily postings, you might consider doing that.
