Are higher ed folks different?
Helen Teague's insight:
American’s still read books! 73% of American’s surveyed have read a book in the past year. 65% have read a print book, 28% an e-book, and 14% an audiobook. The average American reads 12 books in a year? Women read more (15), and men read less (9). Although the survey references the replies of only 1520 adults, it still is a positive trend indicator.

When a Bookstore Closes, an Argument Ends - The New Yorker

When a Bookstore Closes, an Argument Ends - The New Yorker | Thinking, Learning, and Laughing | Scoop.it
La Hune, in Paris, is to close this week. Its end is a deep loss to me, and to civil society.
Helen Teague's insight:

"At a minor level, once a bookstore is gone we lose the particular opportunities for adjacency it offers, determined by something other than an algorithm...A bookstore is a place you go to look as you choose, for as long as you want. The book-sniffer is the active form of his classier cousin the stroller, as the window-shopper is the dreamier form of the curator. Each makes choices, more or less freely, at a more or less happy whim, and lines her own library or museum, if only invisibly, in her head." by Adam Gopnik
