What can you say about the American book store that hasn’t already been said in the 24 years since Amazon launched?

Skipping that formality, there’s this: Trip Taylor Bookseller on 10th Street is shutting its downtown doors for good.  

A “Sinking Ship” sale is on, according to an ad in this week’s edition of the Boise Weekly – with all tomes marked down 75%.  

An employee confirms the store will close in coming weeks once Trip’s inventory is closed out. 

The closure leaves just a pair of bookstores downtown – Rediscovered Books on 8th Street and Rainbow Books on State Street.  

This is the second turnover of tenants in the building just this year after the closure of Bleubird.  

Thanks Colby for the tip and photo.
