On Bookstores and Books

This cartoon graphic is the front cover of the current issue of The New Yorker.  What it depicts is the transformation of many bookstores from selling books to selling a variety of other trinkets.  The physical retail bookspace is now mirroring what Amazon.com has done.

Some Barnes and Noble locations have gone in that direction, with Nook Stations staring you in the face upon entry.  The one I was in this afternoon in Philly that rims Rittenhouse Square was thankfully unfettered by the clutter of games and e-reader paraphernalia.
