a story that will hopefully have a happy ending

A Woman Dreams of Opening a Bookstore, and Defying the Trends
A cool article in the New York Times about Jessica Stockton Bagnulo, a current bookstore employee (at McNally Jackson, a great store here in nyc) who hopes to someday soon open her own bookstore in Fort Greene, a neighborhood in Brooklyn where, according to a survey, 75% of residents would like an independent bookstore. It’s certainly a nice counterpoint to that article in New York this week about the end of book publishing as we know it, don’t you think?
