    How can future used books exist if new book sales diminish?

    I was shocked yesterday walking around Brookline on Harvard Street to see Barnes and Nobles gone. If there was one town around Boston where you would think a bookstore would be supported, it would be Brookline.

      Dave, I'm from Brookline.  I was there in the summer. the Booksmith is still there near Coolidge Corner on Harvard which is probably a better location. Not only that it  now has a decent selection of used pbs. There is still a used bookstore opposite the St Mary's green car stop on Beacon. If you want to see a huge decline in book stores go to Harvard Square. There used to be many bookstores there. Last time I was there I think there were only only two. 

    A book seller in Chicago I knew told me the internet had hurt him because people who wanted to sell books no longer went to him with used books but went to the net. Mark
