Because, you know, there are just jillions of people out there ready to open new bookstores to take up that possible gaping hole in the market to sell an obsolete product.

That’d be so much fun for them too: Selling to a bunch of new tiny accounts on a piecemeal basis instead of one large account in bulk.
