Book Lovers cry

Not much remains of the signage at the former World's Biggest Bookstore in downtown #Toronto on Edward Street, just a mural and some of the paint. Book Lovers don't pay the bills when you download electronic books and stop coming into the brick and mortar stores.
The store closed on March 30, 2014, one more casualty of the internet, like newspapers and music stores. I count myself in those that helped the demise of the printed page. But now I read more than ever, interactively enjoying the written word and the photographs that fill the world wide web.
If you have to hold the book in your hand, feel the muscle between the thumb and the index finger grow as you hold the book open for hours at a time, then you can still order them from the internet, so don't be sad.
