The end of an era

Effective September 1, Vroman's will no longer be offering out of print book searches. (Any out of print orders taken before that date will be honored, of course.) With the ease of finding out of print books online, the number of OP searches we've conducted over the past couple of years has plummeted.

*Sigh* I still remember the thrill I had years ago when Vroman's located a copy of a childhood favorite, Mindy's Mysterious Miniature, for me.

Ya, it's a hard choice between the years of visiting, literally, hundreds of used bookstores in three countries looking for a copy of Recusant Poets or the joy of actually getting it courtesy of bookfinder.com. I don't think I'd really want to give up either.

This can't succeed as a matter of fact, that is exactly what I believe.
