Ned and Meg expound on bookstores past and present. There are 2500 independent bookstores in the US apparently although that seems like a lot. It’s up almost 50% from ten years ago. WOW! We compare the rich experience of book reading to the impoverished experience of e-reading. Plus, card catalogs, lawsuits, illuminated text, Borders vs. Barnes and Noble, little free libraries, murder hobos, and books in bookstores as liminalities within liminalities. Thanks for listening, wash your hands, don’t be a dick.
