The Last Bookstore In America

The Last Bookstore In America - Amy Stewart I thoroughly enjoyed this tale of a not-too-distant future where people read books on their 'Gizmo' rather than buying the real thing, and bookstores are dying out. This store in Eureka, California, is a little different and manages to do very well selling more than just books.All is well until the owner dies and his hapless nephew arrives to take over the store..how will he deal with what he finds...?
This was amusing and easy to read, and the irony of reading it on my kindle was certainly not lost on me..
