In fact, bookstores have always been rare outside the biggest cities.
That's one of the reasons Bezos ramped Amazon up via books.
Sorry for the late response...

Depending on the definition of rare and biggest.

I was under the impression that there were a lot of bookstores in big, medium and even smaller (as well as biggest) cities. The mega bookstores and Amazon may have reduced this, but they were/are there.

For example, doing a Google on bookstores for my state (CT) I get a 180 hits, many (more than a few, less than a lot) of which are not in the biggest.
