e-Book sales up!

Looky looky here.

Publishers Weekly reports e-book sales were up 176% in 2009. Another report to support my opinion that the brick & mortar book stores are a dying dinosaur.

I was sad to hear about the closure of the Barnes & Nobles at Oakland’s Jack London Square on January 31st. Clearly, a sad day for downtown Oakland booklovers. My gut tells me there will be more book store closures across the country. Believe me, it’s a statement I don’t enjoy making.

On the flip side, perhaps the indie bookstores will last longer than the big box B&N and Borders? The San Francisco chronicle posted a February 20 article on the success of Books Inc, a local independent bookstore in the Bay Area. From my personal experience, Books Inc. in Alameda rocks!

People have been asking me what I’m reading lately. I’m in the midst of finishing up Dan Brown’s latest “The Lost Symbol.” Mr. Brown makes me sick. He always gets me to turn the page, and before I know, it’s an hour later. Now I’m wondering if the pyramid really is a map? Or legend? What’s really going on in Washington DC? Darn you Dan Brown! I’ll post a review on my page once I’ve completed it.
