Spent a couple of days in Bristol during which time I popped into Borders bookshop, which, I notice, has no poetry section! It simply doesn't appear on the store directory. Does this mean the High Street is going to get out of the poetry market altogether? Will this be a good thing for poetry? Will it mean you can only buy poetry on the Web (good news for P-O-D publishers?)

I wonder what other typical bookstore sections were "missing"?

Well, they had sections on Philosophy, History and Art as I remember (though I can't vouch for the quality of the books therein). It was just poetry that was missing.
