The Future of Independent Bookstores

Paul Collins, the author of Sixpence House: Lost in a Town of Books, has an interesting article in the Voice Literary Supplement about the future of independent bookstores.

It follows a slew of books and articles looking at the topic.

Slate’s Tyler Cowan has his say.

Laura J. Miller has written a whole book on the subject.

And here’s a story about independent bookstores in Britain.

IN OTHER NEWS: There will be free sneak preview of Al Gore’s film, An Inconvenient Truth, tonight at UC Berkeley’s Wheeler Auditorium. It starts at 8 pm.
