“The Importance of Local Bookstores”

Now that I’ve got the “postaday bummer” out of the way (I’ll try posting the WordPress postaday widget again in the future when I’ve got my focus on), here’s a link to a pleasant post about “The Importance of Local Bookstores,” by Wendy Welch, who is a “Bookshoptimist.” I’m linking to it now because I’m going to post something of my own about our local bookstores, shortly. And no, it won’t be a rant, this time.
