Brick And Mortar Bookshops by Leigh Beadon for techdirt.com

  • physical bookstores must evolve to survive, e.g.,
  • Print On Demand (POD)
  • author and community events
  • personalized attention; emphasize browsing the aisles experience (despite showrooming threat)
  • sell e-readers
  • promotions: print plus e-book
  • "A bookstore is one of the only pieces of evidence we have that people are still thinking." ~Jerry Seinfeld
  • "I went to a bookstore and asked the saleswoman, 'Where's the self-help section?'
    She said if she told me, it would defeat the purpose."
    ~George Carlin
