From my Twitter feed (@MindTheRant) this morning:
Is it a good time to open an indie bookstore? Or a better time to close one? (Long view: will the ereader craze end up devouring printed books so that by the end of the decade the only way to buy them, for most of us, will be online?)
In short, are location-based booksellers the blacksmiths of the 21st century?
You tell me.
