Another Indy Bookstore Bites the Dust

Reading the Ottawa Citizen this morning over breakfast, I was shocked to see this story:

Leishman's Bookstore Files for Bankruptcy

While I didn't/don't (never know how to tense this particular sort of thing) go into Leishman Books all that often, it was one of my favourite independent bookstores left in the city of Ottawa. The sad fact is that the Indy bookstore is going the way of the dodo in a manner that is unpleasant to say the least, and is somewhat shocking when it happens, especially to places like Leishman's Books, which has been around for 50 years.

I am very, very saddened by this news.
