How can bookstores stay relevant?


First - old books have lots of knowledge of previous generations of people. They are the repository of the history of ideas.

This is very valuable, like fine examples of old architecture, art or music, i.e. "high culture"

High culture was a target of the Communists. Much is lost, but not all.

Second - electronic books are much easier to read on a slim electronic reader. It is a superior experience with a good electronic reader and a whole library can be held in the palm of your hand.

The bookstore is only a click away.

However, the Amazon reader is poor quality.
