The Boeing 777 came down near the city of Donetsk, stronghold of pro-Russian rebels, interior ministry official Anton Gerashchenko said on Facebook, adding it was “shot down with a Buk anti-aircraft system by terrorists” – the term the Kiev government uses for militants seeking to unite eastern Ukraine with Russia.

But, if you're like me, you still like the feeling of having the physical book in your hand, still love browsing through the rows and rows of books at bookstores, and have a deep love for "new book smell."

Schuler Books in Grand Rapids had to close the doors of two of their three stores in Grand Rapids the past couple years, but their store at 2660 28th Street SE remains. They decided to parody Lorde's "Royals" with their own version "Indies" to discuss the advantages of going to a bookstore as opposed to just downloading books.
