Long Beach's Acres of Books, the beloved used bookstore, is now finally dead, despite protestors -- including Ray Bradbury-- who fought the city's push to buy the store. The store stopped doing regular business in October of 2008, but the development planned, the Long Beach Art Exchange, has yet to break ground. Off-Ramp's Kevin Ferguson reports with an update on the property.
