Chances are if you’re reading this blog you think your local bookstore is a treasure. And if you don’t work in retail, you might not know that while bookstore owners work hard to keep the doors open and pay their staff people equitably, retail is no route to riches. Sometimes when a personal crisis hits, there’s not a cushion for handling it.
If, like me, you love your local bookstore and use the end of the year as a time to count your blessings, please consider a donation to BINC.
Right now the BINC Board of Directors is matching donations made through 12/15/15. Donating online is easy, secure and any amount means more than you can know to a bookseller somewhere. Click here to donate to BINC.
