Writers on bookshops and why we have to love them Quotes for Writers (and readers)
Word Power* is everything a book shop should be. It has a local bias, puts on interesting events, and is in a cool part of town. I like book shops who have an underlying educative/political mission – they are the small business compliment to the public sector library. Both are institutions that corporate consumer capitalism seeks to destroy. Therefore they should be given love.
* Word Power is a radical independent bookshop in Edinburgh that also runs a worldwide internet service
What I say is, a town isn’t a town without a bookstore. It may call itself a town, but unless it’s got a bookstore it knows it’s not fooling a soul.
& safe places.
