I am a regular bookstore visitor. Generally on Friday night, after we drop my daughter off at ballet, my son and I head over to Indigo and while away a couple hours, browsing and barely resisting the copious books. I have a Kobo. I don’t even know how to set it up and have no real desire to. We don’t actually have an independent bookstore in my town, although we do have a couple second-hand bookstores, which I try to visit when I can.
This article by Canadian Writer David Bidini is, I think, a sad reflection on the state of independent bookstores.
Speaking of indie bookstores, The Bookseller posted a disheartening article about the decline of independent bookstores in the UK. Read it here.
But just so you don’t think all is lost – read this awesome story about a young boy who wants to start a library for homeless people.
Enjoy your day!
