A Victory for the Little Guy

In today's book selling industry, it's not often you see a story like this. Score one for the indies!!

It's nice to know that the indie bookstore IS NOT truly dead.

No Dave, they're only "mostly dead." (Bonus points if you get the reference).

Sadly, two of my favorites, Spenser Mystery Books and Victor Hugo's closed their door a few years ago.

I do believe you reference is to The Princess Bride, which by the way is a classic movie. My kids love it.

Hey, fellow writer! How are you doing?

R.J. Mangahas said...

I'm doing all right. Thanks for stopping by my blog. I hope you'll visit again

RJ, nice to see the Indies out there plugging along, fighting the evil Fox Books mega-empire. (see what happens when you start throwing movie references around? They wind up everywhere with no one to clean up!) Oh, and I love Princess Bride. Inigo Montoya is a classic scene-stealer!

Yeah, Princess Bride is a true classic.
