Bookpool was in Martha's Vineyard, right? I'm surprised they closed.
They don't seem to publish their address, at least not for people like
me, so I was not able to visit them during a trip to Martha's Vineyard
last Thanksgiving. I used to buy from them, they were always completely
reliable and they did have pretty good prices. I've been worrying about
Borders books too.

Folks,

This is Not Fedora Related, just Linux book related.  Earlier this week,
I was attempting to buy a book on Bookpool and it seems to be gone.  The
site was there last week, but comes up with a Network Solutions generic
message.  Did I miss the memo?  Did they go belly up?

thanks,
Michael

I am afraid it is so.  I was at the Bookpool warehouse a week or two
ago and they were in the process of closing down.  They were selling
their [empty] metal shelves even as I was shopping.  I was able to
talk to the owner and it is unclear whether the closure is permanent
or temporary.  The owner did not know whether Bookpool.com would stays
closed, reopens or opens in a new form and how long it would take to
make that decision.

The number of shelves still containing books was about half of what
they were a year ago.  I am surprised that they had to shut their
"doors" so soon.  I am assuming that they are closed based on the
website, www.bookpool.com, current state.  The webpage that is
currently showing up at www.bookpool.com does state "coming soon" so
hopefully, the closure is temporary.

Bookpool.com started out on Martha's Vinyard.  Last year they moved their warehouse to Wilmington, MA.

I wonder if that move over taxed their financial resources?
