    love that bookstore. if you haven’t been, go check it out.
    it is everything people think they want from a local independent bookstore and business.
    if it is successful, great.
    if it fails, it is all your fault.

      Yep. I get pretty annoyed at people that talk about how they love “local independent shops” but then order all their holiday gifts off Amazon.

        yeah, that’s my point.
        going to Home Depot instead of Ayer’s
        Mcdonalds instead of Five Guys.
        walk the talk

      I never knew this bookstore existed.

      I always go to Politics and Prose for my independent bookstore fix.
