Thank you for your article on the closing of Borders book store (“Closing the book on Borders"). It is a loss to the book industry.
It was nice to see John Cieslinski of Books ETC. in Macedon quoted. John and his close counterpart, Marcia Marsille, owner of Village Bookmarket in Palmyra, have worked tirelessly to support the book business and those who still appreciate and love books.
As mentioned in the article, both have been very supportive of local authors, of which I am one, and have worked hard to support readers, authors and their local communities. Both do this with many, many hours of work and very little remuneration.
Thank you for highlighting our wonderful, local independent book stores.
