Why bookstores will not survive this decade (in 33 words)

Barnes and noble

Sun going down on another bookstore.

On the phone with my local Barnes & Noble:

Andy: How much is book X?

Bookstore guy: $25.99.

Andy: But I just saw the same book online for $17.

Bookstore guy: Yes, if you let us send it to you with free shipping, that’s how much it costs.
