Hello everyone. I hope all is well with you. I’m back today with another Slice of Life Post. I’m so excited to announce we’re getting an Indie Bookstore in the area.
I just found out about it this last weekend and it gives me hope for the future. I’m hoping it not only survives but thrives. I love the idea of an independent bookstore. I always imagined myself owning my own store. Do you remember the movie “You’ve got mail?” Meg Ryan played the part of the bookstore owner and I totally identified with her.
I love books. I remember when I lived closer to a Barnes and Noble. I’d go there and spend hours browsing and reading. It was a way to relieve stress. Now, I don’t have that luxury because I have kids, and I’ve moved too far away from that store.
The owners have a refreshing attitude, too. It’s so nice that a business wants to come in and be a part of the community. I’m hoping they’ll carry my books. I find the independent stores are more willing to work with Indie authors than some of the larger chains. I find that very interesting.
I’ve also heard rumblings in the blogosphere that some of the major booksellers aren’t doing as well as expected. Could this new bookstore be the wave of the future? I’ve heard there’s a resurgence of the Independent bookstore. Check out this blog post from “Books and Mortar” and draw your own conclusions.
How about you, do you like browsing through a bookstore, spending hours just reading and checking out books? Tell me what your favorite bookstore is. Leave a comment, I’d love to hear from you.
