Declaration of independents
Today I was lucky enough to guest blog at this delightful new addition to the ‘Sphere. It’s called Buried Under Books and is written by a bookseller who recently left behind bricks and mortar for…a new life.
Her stories are fascinating and to my mind say a lot about the future of independent bookselling, which I see as revolutionizing, as in soon-to-be-revolutionized. I mean that in the best sense of the word: exploding unto change, becoming even a greater force in the future.
But change I suspect it will.
In a new column on this blog–another of my resolutions for ’10–I hope to feature indie booksellers (see the title of this post) every few months, discussing what their day-to-day is like, how they are surviving, ways they see the future, and what keeps them in the game now.
For now let me just link to Lelia’s new blog and hope that many of you visit it and get inspired!
