Support Your Local Bookstore

Are you still looking for holiday gifts? It's almost too easy to order a book online these days, or to stop at one of the chain bookstores while you're in the mall.

But here's my thought for the day: if you need another holiday gift, how about buying it at your local bookstore? You'll feel good about supporting an independent bookseller, and your gesture might repay you many times over.

Independent booksellers make independent decisions. Thus, they're more likely to buy your book or set up a signing for you than a chain bookstore would be. Enjoy the holiday, and buy wisely -- and pragmatically.
