The Joy of Independent Bookselling

From Annie Philbrick, Bank Sqaure Books, Mystic, CT

This is a quote from an article about her: “It[‘s] a lifestyle choice, because no one gets wealthy running an independent shop in a market with big-box and online competitors. But,  you get rich in other ways. You get to talk to people who love books. You get to talk about books with people who love books. You get to figure out “which book someone is looking for when they come in and say, ‘The cover is yellow. And it has an island on it,'”
