More News from Heritage

Michael Lieberman at Book Patrol has some details on the rumors that have been softly swirling in recent weeks about major changes at Heritage Book Shop. Quite a surprise that this hasn't been more noticed in the mainstream media, but hey, I guess that's what the biblioblogosphere is for!

Michael reports that the Weinstein brothers are planning to sell the building which currently houses their open shop, and will auction off most of their inventory. One of the brothers will continue to sell books, but "in a much reduced capacity." There's more in Michael's post about the consequences of all this, which will certainly be profound; do make sure to read his entire writeup.
