Borders - Your Neighborhood Used Book Store?

With the traditional publishing industry continuing to turn on its ear, people I've been telling have been asking me what will be the fate of book stores (and from several, used book stores). Where I live (pop. 70,000) we don't have a book store.

Yes. You heard me. There is NO traditional book store. No B&N. No Borders.

However, there is a Hastings, thank goodness. And already they have an entire aisle in their store of used books, mostly hardbacks.

How much longer do you think it will be before the big corporation brick-and-mortar stores start carrying 2nd hand, just to help make ends meet?
