Even “The Final Chapter” would have been better
Posted by: Keir Graff

I love independent bookstores as much as anybody. (Maybe I should say, “more than many people,” given the news that follows.) And so this story in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution (“Independent bookstores finding it tough,” by Tammy Joyner), just another in a near-daily litany of bad news for indie booksellers, brings me no joy.

But surely the founders of the small Chapter 11 chain of bookstores could have thought a bit more positively when selecting a name. They’re not in Chapter 11 yet, but they are closing two of their remaining three stores.

(Their blog, which hasn’t been updated since last October, says they have four locations. Time to update!)
