Here’s a photo of Indie Bob, a marvelous customer and advocate of independent bookstores everywhere. He shows up to chat whenever he’s in town to tell us of his adventures traveling the highways and byways in search of brave souls who’ve gone it alone in the shark infested world of Amazon and Barnes for the love of selling books. He’s always mentioning stores we’ve never heard of, praising proprietors and booksellers and stores. He’s a tall high-spirited gent always eager to talk about the books in his life and wondering about ours. Next week he’s scheduled his first trip to Canada.
His goal is to publish a book about ALL the indies he’s visited on his travels. He’s an excellent and wide-ranging reader who is always welcome in Prairie Lights. We wish him well.
