The Joys of Independent Bookselling

Independent bookshop

“Every indie bookstore has a personality and every individual can find one whose character suits him. Not just the books themselves and the authors, but the very bookstore itself. It is, in a sense, finding oneself in a place where one can discover a community”

Everyone needs a little bit of independent bookselling love in their lives, and Franck Bohbot  and Philippe Ungar provide it with their latest project We Are New York Indie Booksellers. 

In a series of interviews with booksellers, Ungar notes: “No one is getting rich from indie bookselling, yet everyone… Everyone,” he stresses. “Every bookseller says: ‘I’m happy.’”
