I don't think Gail or Mitch will be inviting Bernard Goldberg or Mark Levin to any book signings anytime soon.

I would love to see the 'new' Kepler's create a viable model for a local bookstore in the digital age. Why not create a place where customers with digital readers can both purchase content and contribute to the local economy? Why not create a local readers' group that recommends books and shares evaluations? Why not compete with Amazon by providing better services - a very tough challenge?
