Save your local independent bookstore

Even Powells, the biggest bookstore west of the Mississippi isn't immune to the latest downturn.

Powell's Books is asking employees to scale back their hours or take sabbaticals to cope with disappointing sales. Powell's management informed its 500-person staff Monday that they could reduce their schedules or "take advantage of expanded options for sabbaticals."

Please support your local bookstore. I just bought a copy of The Hunger Games at
Annie Blooms for a Christmas present. I could have gotten it for a dollar or two less at Amazon (when you factor in shipping), but right now I'm trying to support local bookstores. Their employees shop and eat in my neighborhood, making my dollar go a little further.
