  •  Gail-Darrel Pugh-Bray: Books, but I have e -books for when we travel. I will miss the store when it closes.
  •  Lou Petrie: Love going to a book store.
  •  Marilyn Cutting: e books are great (that's what I read all the time now) but it is a pity to see book shops closing down.
  •  Mary Kleynjan: I prefer real books as you can take them to bed and read comfortably. But that is just me. Am sad about the bookshop closing.
  •  Cheryl Bryant: BOOKS!. Very sad, won't be able to buy talking books for my 87yr-old mum.
