“Indie Bookstores Are Back, With a Passion” was the title of a recent New York Times article. In it they reported that the American Booksellers Association says the number of indie stores is up 30% since 2009 and that sales at indies were up 10% last year. Let’s keep the trend going in this direction……you can help by shopping often at Cherry Street Books!
