I live in a small town where we don't have any independent bookstores. And this saddens me to no end. (Well we do have a coffee shop that has a "used book nook") Don't get me wrong, I do like my local Barnes and Noble and Books-a-million, but I love the feeling I get when I go into an independent bookstore - like it is filled with hidden treasures just waiting for me to find them. This is probably why any time I visit a new town or city, I always search out the local indie scene.
I've thought about this for a while and alluded to it in previous posts and after visiting Fountain Bookstore again this week, I've decided that I'd like to host a new feature on this blog - Love Your Indie. I'd like to invite any bloggers or readers of this blog to share their favorite independent bookstore in their own post. Depending on the response, I would like to feature a new post once or twice a month.
If you're interested in participating in this new feature, please send me an email at email@example.com - I'd love to hear from you and discover your favorite indie bookstore!
