Remember my constant ranting about how our venerable trade association, the America Booksellers Association (aka BookSense and then, later IndieBound) was exhorting us to get with the e-book trend now, but gave us no tools with which to do so?
Well, silence prevails still and yet, we have read that the Association is ready to throw our lot with Google. We did not read it in a memo or an e-mail message to members, but in the New York Times. And, to date, we still haven't been notified of what may or may not be happening. We'll let you know when we know. Stay tuned.
Sauk Valley's premier bookstore/coffeehouse features fiction, non-fiction, children's & local interest books.
Open 7 days/week, we also have fine coffees & pastries, wooden puzzles, children's art supplies & other toys, handmade fair trade goods plus priceless conversation. Special orders welcomed.
