I needed a book on death for a friend's six years old child. I have my favorites, so off I went to Barnes and Noble, then Borders, another Borders, a third Borders and one more Barnes and Noble. What I discovered in each store was a barren or non-existent children’s issues section. I don’t know if this is a new trend or the bookstores are low on stock. Six months ago, I had no trouble finding a similar book. Tomorrow, I’m off to the independent booksellers to see if I have any better luck.
