It’s a common misconception that Amazon has killed the independent bookstore industry. In reality, bookstores which manage to adapt to this new era, and perhaps even those that don’t, are hanging on.
While browsing YouTube, I stumbled across a channel of the Peter Harrington Bookshop. It showcases many beautiful works of book art. Lots of videos were posted there, until some moment last year they, unfortunately, stopped making new content.
Recent data from the Bookseller Association reveals that after 20 years of decline, the number of independent bookstores is on the rise again.
