*sniff* Bye Bye A&R

One third of my book purchasing nirvana is going down the gurgler in the next few weeks. Angus and Robertson at the three most local shopping malls are heading into receivership and that makes me sad… but it also has me giggling with delight.

SALES!!!

So I will be sad to see their doors close, but really, they’ve not been overly competitive for years.

Though I will be sad, it is a rather large win for the smaller book stores like pulp fiction and rosemary’s romance.

R.I.P those important A&R Stores. Long live independent and smaller bookstores.
