Indies Make Us Feel 'Like Home'

Shelf Awareness

"I don't want to interrupt your day and shout small business propaganda, but sometimes I think it's a great reminder for all of us (myself included) to step back and remember what kinds of places make us feel 'excited' and what kinds of businesses make us feel 'like home.'

"Whether you live in Ann Arbor or Seattle or across the big blue sea somewhere, remember those places that made you feel less lonely. As a bookstore, we know that the odds aren't in our favor. We also know that we are here because our customers have made a choice to support us. We're proud to be a business that makes people feel excited, and to help those visitors from far-away lands feel, at least for a little while, like they're home."
