    Nice links! Too bad about B & N. I used to use a Nook Color, and I still visit the bricks and mortar stores, was just there yesterday, but I guess they are fighting an uphill battle against Jeff Bezos 🙂

    Interesting article on literacy. I was going to guess Iceland if you hadn’t mentioned Finland right away, because I posted a link awhile back that in Iceland they have a time during the holidays where you are supposed to buy books and gift them to people, then snuggle in and read! Sounded way cool. Enjoy your weekend!

      Thanks, Rita! Yes, I think Amazon has really put a dent in the brick-and-mortar chains, but on the other hand, there seem to be more indie bookstores popping up, which is encouraging. And I must admit I buy some of my print books from Amazon, because I live 1/2 hour away from the nearest bookstore, and I can’t always justify the time and gas to go to the store. But I do buy from them when I am in town.
