    I still can’t get over Borders leaving and I doubt I ever will. What is America coming to when we don’t even have a bookstore anymore in the heart of Buckhead? Couldn’t Books A Million have come in here? The dumbing down of America continues.

  2. yes!

    Dave, I’m not sure that you can base the ‘dumbing down of America” on the decline of the Brick and Mortar bookstore.

    Amazon and Apple do brisk e-book business.

    @Dave – Borders was terrible. Barnes & Noble is a considerably better bookstore, at the chain level. When you’re #3 in a business that can tolerate 2 competitors at most, your days are numbered.

    I do agree that it would be nice to have a “bookstore culture” in Atlanta. However, a large part of the catalyst of Bookstore culture is the random draw that it provides to the foot traffic outside…and as we all know, this city has crap for foot traffic.

    Bookstores are so 90′s. A 30k square foot store cannot justify being a glorified reading room, and that is what these big bookstores had turned into. The reading consumer is alive and well but the store is digital, not brick and mortar.

    What’s up with the exterior remodeling inspired by “Miami Vice?”
