doing even more for indies
Thanks once again to Shelf Awareness, my favorite industry newsletter, for posting a link to an article in Traveler magazine:
10 of the Best Independent Bookstores Across the U.S., by Kati Heng
For thirty years I lived a mere half-block from one of Ms. Heng’s Best Indies: Mercer Street Books & Records, and a stranger bookstore I’ve never visited. And I did visit it often, always with trepidation: the bookshelves were so loosely moored to the walls and floor that one felt in constant danger of being buried under a mound of books. There are worse ways to go.
