The Power of the Press

Some folks may say that newspapers are a thing of the past, but the last few days in our store say otherwise.  Ever since Neely Tucker's article, Independent Bookstores Add a New Chapter appeared in The Washington Post last Thursday, we've been flooded with visitors (and buyers). 

Maybe book readers are also newspaper readers, but they're also folks who support local businesses, are interested in listening to new authors, being part of their community and having fun - we love them!  Thanks for your support and thanks to Neely for such a wonderful article!
