    Thank you – unless more booksellers start thinking along these lines (outside the lazy everyday inside of the box) our business will continue its slide toward oblivion.

    Our local customer base deserves more than a bunch of clerks sitting around waiting for them to stumble into the store when they have nothing better to do – our stores have to become destinations to be visited regularly and they need a depth of stock or ideas to make their shopping trip worthwhile.

    There has to be some sort of momentum toward taking the publishing business out of the hands of people content with the status quo – supporting Archipelago Books seems like a good place to start.

    I will be contacting Archipelago Books to place an order as soon as I submit this comment – thanks again.

    I feel your pain! Most times when I walk into my “home” bookstore, the clerks are sitting behind the counter typing on a computer and I want to say “get out and talk to your customers!” Even I feel like I’m interrupting them when I ask a question.

    I hope you enjoy Archipelago, they are a special company.
