Here’s the problem: Bob Woodward’s bestseller “Fear” goes for $30 at the private DC bookstore Politics & Prose and for $18.25 on Amazon.
Small private book sellers are getting creamed. Even Barnes & Noble is hurting.
However, Noelle Santos, who left a six figure HR job, crowdfunded $175,000 to open a book store in the Bronx.
But she has bigger plans, including a wine bar, bookmobile and publishing original content.
Other small book sellers are popping up in NYC offering live events, local art and signed first editions. Reading is coming back.
