Do YOU like the changes that have come to bookselling in the last several decades? Do you shop online? Do you prefer big chain stores, or do you prefer small, independent shops? Why?
For the most part I like the changes. Books are so much easier to get now but I hate that so many little bookstores are going out of business because of stores like Amazon.com. Independent shops are not only cozier but the people are usually friendlier too.
8 times out of 10, if I buy a book I'm going to get it either from Walmart or a bookstore (usually Waldenbooks) or if it's an older book, probably Ebay. I do order online occasionally (but very seldom) though.
