Sad news. Another book store is going to bite the dust. Russo's Bookstore in Bakersfield will be closing its doors at the end of January according to the Bakersfield Californian. Tony Russo, the owner, will continue selling books online, however. I'm always sorry to see a bookstore close, but I can understand why. The trend to e-books has changed the book business and his store is in a high rent area of Bakersfield.
