I just want to encourage/remind everyone to love your local brick and mortar bookstore this Valentine's Day and buy a book. An author friend of mine, Lisa Asanuma has spearheaded this movement. I think it's an awesome idea and is worthy of all of our support. The last thing we need to have happen in this ever-changing world of ours, is to have the traditional bookstore disappear. We need to hold on to these havens where a person can go and skim the pages of a book, feel the crisp new pages between their fingers, smell the aroma of a new leather binding, and shop in the old-fashion way. This one day surge of book-buying might not change the world of publishing, but it will at least make a statement. Check out Lisa's blog for more details.
