Sarah Weinman asks Goodbye, NYIBC? Words can't express how upset I am about this. Several years ago, I approached a booth for something called The Readers Vine - an on-line group of people discussing books and book-related stuff.
TRV ceased to exist in 2001, and a group of dedicated, hardworking volunteers took over, creating The Readers Place. I've made so many good friends through this community, it saddens me no end to see that what helped "matchmake" is ending.
