Does anyone know where the nearest book store is located? I am referring to general book stores like Border's or Waldenbooks, not specialty book shops like Tolley's or Hallmark.

The Border's that used to be at Mercer Mall is gone and the Waldenbooks that used to be at Crossroads Mall in Beckley is gone now, too. Anyone know of any others close by?

Waldenbooks has been owned by Borders for quite sometime. I'm pretty sure that Borders went belly up and only their online presence remains.

I know that a lot of people really have a thing for "real books." I do too. But do yourself a favor and buy a Kindle. There are cheaper ones without all the fancy extras if you look online. You can download almost any book from the Amazon store for a much lower price than a regular book, and it only takes about a minute to do. You just have to have access to wifi to download them.

The only place that I know of nearby that sells books is Walmart, and their selection is pretty small. I didn't want to switch to ebooks myself, but I didn't have much choice and I like them pretty well now. It's just easier and cheaper to download a book than order one and pay shipping, then wait a week to get it.
