Recently the B. Dalton's book retail chain shut down its store in Laredo, Texas as one of several that was closed due to its lack of profitability.
This was the last major book seller with an outlet within that city, which I find pretty amazing.
No Barnes and Noble? No Borders/Walden Books?
Nothing within a large metropolitan city of over 200,000 people that, besides supporting its own school district and community college system, is the home to Texas A & M International University and hosts a satellite campus of the University of Texas Health Science Center?
And it no longer has any book stores?
Do I really need to tell you what is wrong with that?
