Where to find books (other than the library)

Today's book blog from the L.A. Times called "Jacket Copy" talks about how the NEA's latest report discusses the demise of reading and the blog also announces another book store closing. [Such gloom and doom in the book world.] On a brighter side, they do report on another company that sells books: Starbucks. The latest offering in Starbucks stores nationwide is Beautiful Boy by David Sheff.

Remember when there used to be a book store in the Buena Park Mall? (Ahh, the good old days!) If anyone wants to check out a bricks and mortar bookstore now -- you must travel to Fullerton, La Habra, or Cerritos. Here is a list of the local area book stores:
