An Audio Tour of a New Indie Bookstore

An Audio Tour of a New Indie Bookstore Bookstore humor CBC Radio has a satirical take on the growing trend of bookstores devoting less stock to books and replacing them with gewgaws:

Local bookstore Epilogues sells everything you could ever want in a bookstore: candles, globes, themed napkins, globes and pillows that say Live, Laugh, Love.

Of course as a bookstore, they do also have something for readers -- Margaret Atwood nesting dolls.

you can listen to the clip below, or on the CBC's website.

About Nate Hoffelder (10067 Articles)
Nate Hoffelder is the founder and editor of The Digital Reader:"I've been into reading ebooks since forever, but I only got my first ereader in July 2007. Everything quickly spiraled out of control from there. Before I started this blog in January 2010 I covered ebooks, ebook readers, and digital publishing for about 2 years as a part of MobileRead Forums. It's a great community, and being a member is a joy. But I thought I could make something out of how I covered the news for MobileRead, so I started this blog."
