Indie Bookstores redux

Mark Leslie Lefebvre brought to my attention another nifty indie bookseller in Ottawa, Collected Works.

The Ottawa Citizen article sums up the bookstore better than I could, so I’ll leave it to you to click through. While you’re at it, take a gander at Collected Works’ website. Pretty decent. Informative, interactive, even has a link to an online shopping cart.

Wonder how they feel about indie publishers? I’m going to find out.

For now, I’d score Collected Works 7/10. Why? That attitude to indie publishers remains an unknown at this point, and they have not as yet invested the huge capital in an EBM. Still and all, a bookstore to support and watch.

  1. Just an FYI, but Christopher is out of town for the next few days – he's on the board of directors for Canadian Booksellers Association and so is already in Toronto today through the weekend for the CBA National Conference/Libris Awards, etc.

    But hey, I'll put in a good word for you since I'll be spending a lot of time with him this weekend. 🙂
