"What I love about independent bookstores is..."
"What I love about independent bookstores is that they sell books. I go
to an indie so that I can hear what book-loving experts have to say, so
that someone will direct me to my next beautiful experience, so that I
can participate in reading as a social experience, which is profoundly
what it is. What I most miss about not having an indie in my own
neighborhood is all the ways in which a great bookstore is also a
community center, a place for ideas, a place of thought and reflection
and feeling." - Indie Next and Indies Introduce author Laura McBride
