How can you write a column lamenting the closing of an indie bookstore and then refer to a page you found on Amazon for the end quote??

A real shame to come across this online. I worked with a couple of publishing houses in the US which shared the same sort of ethos Transitions was interested in covering and had the pleasure of doing business with them. A great pair and committed to giving back like few people I've met. A store which will be missed.
