One hundred independent bookshops in the UK have ganged together in the hope of increasing their buying power to compete with the largest sellers. I appreciate that those readers in the US will feel this is the most useless story in the history of ever, but I ask you spend a couple more minutes with me before you give up.

The reason I mention this is that it constitutes an interesting example of what happens when big business comes up against lean, mean entrepreneurs. I love it. Of course, I don’t like the fact that independents were not getting an opportunity to get big name titles like everyone else.

Think global but buy local, right?
