The Book Works, RIP

I deeply regret the loss of yet another bookstore. The BookWorks was more than a bookstore - it was a place to browse and talk about books with other book-minded strangers - a true community meeting place. I have watched as one after another independent bookstore closes and it is very distressing. Cole's in La Jolla, Grounds for Murder in Old Town, Mystery Book Store in Westwood....Wish someone could come up with a financial model that would allow independent bookstores to survive even with Amazon, etc. around. I naively hoped they could co-exist.
