Independent bookstores can now do print-on-demand on the premises (some of them)
CBS News reports that independent bookstores are making strong returns after being almost wiped out in the middle 2000s.
The resurgence of independent bookstores is related to “localism”, and some bookstores can now to print-on-demand on the premises, which could be an interesting development for me.
One of the largest indie bookstores in the DC area is Kammerbooks at Dupont Circle. Recently I went to a reading at One More Page Books in Falls Church VA.
CBS has a story in 2003 concerning some bookstores' purging customer records when Congress passed the Patriot Act!
Heavy rain hampered “shop small” Saturday in the DC Area, although I had a chance in Ellicott City MD Sunday.
