Bye-Bye, Borders

Can electronic reading devices really replace the tangible and tactile experience of reading traditional paper and print books?  What about the bookstore cafe experience which is a time and place to socialize and communicate about books, periodicals and ideas?  I think the city is losing something profound, and I can only hope that Barnes and Noble will one day step in and fill the intellectual void being left in Scranton with one of their own brick and mortar stores.

  1. So sad isn't it. That was our last large store. We're hoping for a B&N too.
