Grim signs

The NY Times has posted another article about the struggles of independent booksellers. The American Booksellers Association just hosted its 6th annual Winter Institute, and the store owners who attended were clearly willing to try just about anything to stay relevant. (Bookstores with wine bars! Cafes! Online presences! Whatever!) The article also mentions the most recent rumors about the Borders chain, which delayed payments to publishers last month and appears to be within a gnat's whisker of closing its doors.
