I'm reposting Tara Lazar's post on Save the Bookstores Day because I couldn't have come up with a better way to tell this story. Check it out here http://taralazar.wordpress.com/2012/06/04/support-save-the-bookstores-day-on-june-16th/
And please, if you can, clear some time on your calendar to visit your local bookstore on June 16th. I'll be at BookWorld http://www.bookworldstores.com/showLoc.php?id=44
and Snowbound Books http://www.snowboundbooks.com/ in Marquette, MI!
