Mike: Sorry Hastings closing, but …

Mike Kennedy Facebooks: "I'm sorry to read this, as Hastings was a real joy to book-lovers when they opened in Cd'A 20 or so years ago. But in the last several years I have seen a decline in quality, selection of books, and even cleanliness in their stores in Cd'A and Boise, so I can't say this is a shock. I'm sorry for those folks who will have to make a career shift. It's good that the Well-Read Moose exists in Riverstone now. They have a very high quality operation."

Question: Do you still buy books?
