Support Your Local Independent Bookstore

The Boston Globe today has an informative article on how independently owned and operated bookstores in Massachusetts are better able to survive (and even thrive) in the down economy than their big-brand bland-box chain-store counterparts.

My personal interests in bookstores tend towards secondhand, collectible, antiquarian, and speciality (to a point) stores rather than new books stores of any kind (independent or chain), but it does give one hope to see how some local merchants are able to make lemonade out of the lemons thrust upon us by the greedy and incompetent "Disasters of the Universe" who got us into this mess.
