This Books-A-Million at Crossroads Mall in Roanoke is one of a number of them nationally that has been shut down because of a combination of factors. I'm not necessarily going to express grief at the loss of a big box store, even if it is a book store, because those tears have already been cried when the local bookseller bit the dust over the last decade or so.
Reading is here to say, I think, but the delivery system is changing, whether it be books or magazines and newspapers. They're still coming to our eyes and our minds and that's not going anywhere ... Unless the Republicans take over completely, in which it becomes a distinct possibility.
