Booksellers are immersed in what we sell in a way I don’t think is true of other shop assistants. Ancient records of canoes are found from the Pacific Northwest to the coast of Maine, in Minnesota and Mexico, in the Southeast and across the Caribbean. The narrative that unfolds as one scrolls down the page is one of resilience, a tale of remarkable gains and triumphs over a string of enemies, each more fierce than the last (the chains, the big box stores, Amazon).

I have merged my original two books I wrote when I was younger with my understanding I have now that I am older. For the weekend that it’s around, he says, when all the dealers combine their stock under one roof, “it’s the best bookstore in America.” And then, “when everybody packs up and goes home, it’s gone.” Yesterday, I told you that In Other Words, the feminist bookstore featured in the TV show Portlandia under the fictional name Women & Women First, had put a "Fuck Portlandia" sign in its window, and when the Willamette Week reached out for comment, bookstore staff told the Week to "go fuck themselves."

It's a move that the American Booksellers Association (ABA) was touting as a measure that would (finally) level the playing field between such heavy e-commerce hitters as Amazon (AMZN) and the independents. To make a point so obvious that it’s sometimes overlooked, the most crucial moment in bookselling is the moment a reader finds out that a book that sounds interesting exists. In The Sky Watched, the voices of children, adults and elders, of Indian boarding school students and traditional tribal storytellers, and of the Manidoog, the unseen beings who surround our lives every day are given voice in a manifestation of the Ojibwe oral tradition teachings on the written page.

On the cataract front, at my last eye test and considering my dotage, I asked the optician about cataracts, his reply surprised me. Chapter 10 shows you how to get beyond non-fiction books for maximum profit. It was ABA's hope, and strategy, to send a message through the industry that illegal terms would not be tolerated.
