Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Declaring Independence in Philadelphia:


Stephen -- Growing up with a library of more than 5,000 books in the house, I would eagerly visit any bookstore, especially one that has 'lived' books.

Roger -- The way Joseph Fox Bookshop competes is by not competing. Michael works with the chains because they don't have staff for and don't do events outside the stores. So they refer those events to him. And by having relationships with publishers, he has become dependable and sought after. It still means a lot of work, but I do not know of anyone who succeeds without it.

If you ever come to the Menlo Park-Palo Alto area, go to Keplers, one one of the great independent bookstores. But like most other indies, it has had its problems competing with the online world.

I don't know if they're still there or not -- it's been a few years -- but the next time you're in the Milwaukee Airport (assuming you aver land in that part of the country, of course), go buy a book. There was (hopefully still is) a used bookstore that goes far beyond the "recycled airport novel" genre and is truly a great place to spend an hour or two. I think I bought a hardback copy of Xenophon's 'Anabasis' for my flight home.
