The Independent Bookstore: Why It Matters

On October 29, 2012, much of the eastern seaboard was devastated by Hurricane Sandy's gusty winds and deadly storm surges. While R.J. Julia Booksellers was fortunately spared from her destruction, our friends at Bank Square Books in Mystic, CT were not so lucky.

Because we know first-hand how important independent booksellers are to the community they serve, we thought we'd ask our readers why they cherish their local bookstore and how reading has changed their lives. The touching responses we've received--both creative and sentimental in nature--moved us and have been compiled into this special book to benefit the reparations and rebuilding of Bank Square Books. We thank you for your consideration, help and support and wish you all a very happy and healthy new year ahead.
