The Book Mark. Haunted Bookshop. Books West Southwest. Books Brothers. Coyotes Voice. And all the rest. All gone now, and sadly missed. The big-box bookstores invaded like a gang of bloodthirsty pirates--they took no prisoners and are here to stay. That said, they're a nice place to go, meet a friend, grab a café mocha and sit around looking literary. And they have one thing the older stores didn't--a good selection of music and movies. Check out books from local favorites like Ed Abbey, Charles Bowden, Bill Broyles, Barbara Kingsolver, Tom Miller, Jack Dykinga and Alan Weisman. There are two Barnes and Noble stores in Tucson, and if they don't have what you want, they can certainly order it.
