Independent Bookstores of America!

Hi Everyone,

Below I have created an index to all 49 bookstore blog posts.  On each post you can find all the bookstore's website, Facebook, and Twitter links. The list is also a quick at-a-glance of which stores will be featured in the final book. Share it around, take a look, and the next time someone claims his state doesn't have any independent bookstores anymore, show them this page and prove they're wrong!

Thank you all so much for following me on this bookstore tour these last months as I continue to work to create this Independent Bookstores of America coffee table book. The first couple stages are officially finished! I'm so grateful for all the support I've received from so many people. From all you beautiful book loving people who supported the IndieGoGo campaign to all the new friends, blog followers, and bookstore owners I've met over the last few months during this bookstore tour -- I could not have done this without all of you. 



Total Miles Driven: 18,821
Indie Bookstores Photographed: 49 
States visited: 48
Months on the road: 4+
Total # of times I give thanks for all of your support: 1,000,000,000 (and only grows each day)




As for questions about Hawaii and Alaska, well maybe one day it'll be in the budget, and we can add them in. :-)

Thank you, thank you, and thank you again.

Morgan

P.S. -- If your favorite indie bookstore didn't make it into the book this time, I am really sorry. I promise the hardest part of this project was narrowing down the bookstores to only one per state. There are many more out there that I truly love. Thank goodness, right? Long live bookstores!

    3. Independent bookstores do everything big business bookstores do, with only one important difference. Since I am educational writer and providing UCAS personal statement writing services at Personal Statement Folks. As a writer, I know without independent bookstores, those outstanding places which purchase books not by weight but by volume, there would be no great new authors to discover because no publisher would take a risk by publishing anything less than an instant bestseller.

    4. An independent bookstore is a retail bookstore which is self-sufficiently owned. Usually, independent stores contain of only a single actual store. Now a day I am working at quality assignment help writer and providing writing service for educational students. Since the rise of large chains and online booksellers, independent bookstores have been under significant financial pressure, and many have closed due to their incapability to compete.

    5. Thanks for sharing list of Independent Bookstores of America. Independent stores can be contrasted with chain bookstores, which have many locations and are owned by large corporations which often have other divisions besides bookselling. At CV folks CV writing services, I would like to share this list with my CV maker team. Independent stores may be structured as sole proprietorships, closely held corporations or cooperatives, or nonprofits.
