Tobias Buckell, who I link to on the right, has an interesting post on what's going to happen to all of the unsold books when Waldenbooks closes its stores at the end of the month. In short, tossed in the trash.
Read the post, though, because it's an interesting look at how the publishing industry works. Read the comments too. Lots of smart people leave their two cents. And for those of you who don't speak Acronym, MMPB stands for mass-market paperback.
