Another bookstore in Manhattan is dead.
It was the only store I knew of — that I’d personally been in — that stocked paperbacks by Ed Wood, Jr., several by Dennis Potter usually available only in England, and a bunch of obscure books you’d never find at a mainstream store like Barnes & Noble or Borders.
But that didn’t save them from the eBook revolution. The place was basically a ghost town for the past two years. I was last inside way back in 2008, where my aversion to paper books reared up and prevented me from buying a paper book that I would have liked to have.
