Books be Gone

Gone Away Forever.

I took this yesterday on my route. Until two months ago this was the Joseph-Beth Books. No longer. They went out of business, and now the building is utterly gutted as the new tenant renovates and transforms the structure into something else. I hear it's going to sell bathroom fixtures to upscale clients. From books to shitters. There's something monumentally sad in that.

Very Sad. It won't be long before a bookstore will be about as rare as a record store!

I hope not, but fear that it's so.
