Support Your Community by Shopping Local

Another reason to support your local used bookstores.  They support you, your favorite restaurants, your schools, your churches, your neighbors, your nephew’s football team, your community choir.  The big box stores or Internet sites?  Not so much.

$100 spent at a local bookstore brings $45 worth of economic activity in the local community, while $100 spent at a large bookstore chain brings only $13 back to the community.
