For the last 5 months I've been playing with the idea and the numbers of opening a brick & mortar bookstore. And I've come to the conclusion...
It's worth a shot!! And actually... I think it could be a truly wonderful thing!! My location is a college town with a small liberal arts college. The population is small but the demographics are super high for per capita graduate degree holders ... even aside from students!
It's a hipster little town that believes in art, culture, coffee, environment, education, indie everything, and shopping local. And it has no bookstore!!
Of course, there are about 10 million things to iron out before this genius idea comes close to reality. But I plan on doing some ironing!!
So, please, join me in welcoming the store:
