The New York Time books section had an article yesterday about Independent book stores. And it was actually fairly up beat. The summary is that, even though there were no big breakout books this Christmas, independent books stores are actually doing fairly well. And the Kobo partnership with independent bookstores to sell Kobo ereaders and have people buy ebooks from their local independent bookstores is actually working and profitable.
It is just nice to read an article that isn’t assuming the end of the book world as we know it.
