"You are the same today as you will be in five years except for two things: the people you meet and the books* you read." (Charles T. Jones)
*interpreted to include stage productions and movies especially those connected with books
With the coming liquidation of Border's, which includes Waldenbooks, Jackson will no longer have a bookstore that sells new books. Sure Target, Meijer's, Pamida, and others sell a selection of books but I won't be going there when I am looking for something to read. Luckily we have a great used bookstore and a library to take up some of the slack, but it looks like it is down to Amazon and other online providers. This is a sad day indeed.
