Bay Area Bookmobile going to shut down
LAFAYETTE, Calif. (KGO) -- It not just the big boys who can't make a buck when it comes to selling books.
The Bay Area Bookmobile is shutting it's shop the same week that Borders goes out of business.
Long time East Bay bookseller Dave Simpson took "Big Blue" on the road last October. He gave himself a year to break even, but he says he can't make it in the current economic climate.
