Lundi Gras

I am really looking forward to the Slake Lundi Gras event this Monday! I helped out with their Down & Delirious launch party a few weeks ago, which turned out to be loads of fun, and I’ve hosted their Vroman’s in-store event before, too. Seriously, those Slake folks know how to throw a party. So, […]

Borders: An Indie’s Perspective

Borders: An Indie’s Perspective

Big news today: Borders, one of the two dominant brick-and-mortar bookstore chains in the nation, is closing nearly a third of its locations. That includes the Glendale Borders and the Pasadena location, just down the street. Despite them being local competition, those of us here at Vroman’s are saddened. Any bookstore closing is a loss […]

Borders looking bad, Powell’s layoffs, Mystery Bookstore and Diesel’s Malibu branch closing (both will be missed, and best of luck to all of their displaced employees and readers!)… bookstores have had a little bit of a scary month so far.
