As Books & Books Celebrates 30 Years, Owner Reflects on a Changing Industry

As Books & Books Celebrates 30 Years, Owner Reflects on a Changing Industry | Real Estate Agent, Realtor | Scoop.it

Books & Books, one of the most successful independent bookstores in the country, celebrated its 30th anniversary last Saturday and owner Mitchell Kaplan says he is ready for more changes to his industry.

 

“Let’s not say it’s not a struggle. We’re not coasting,” Kaplan said. “We are successful because the community of readers and writers in South Florida supports us. If there wasn’t the amount and intensity of readers and writers down here that demand a bookstore, we wouldn’t be able to survive.”


A party is certainly warranted because it’s not easy for an independent bookstore to survive in this environment.Book selling has been undergoing waves of changes with the rise of online retailers and e-books. Borders has gone out of business and Barnes & Noble is closing and downsizing locations. Independent booksellers across the country are having a tough time as well, but Books & Books remains a big draw for literary aficionados.
