The next time you feel depressed about the future of authors, bookstores or publishing, watch the video embedded above from Half Price Books–How To Build a (New) Bookstore.
The time-lapse video shows the construction of a bookstore from empty warehouse to the customer-ready store. It’s inspiring footage for all book lovers.
Here’s more about the video: “We are opening our 113th store on Thursday, and may we just say how grateful we are to be opening stores and not closing them (a thousand thank yous to our customers). To celebrate, we put together this fun video demonstrating all that goes into building and opening a new bookstore– a rare sight these days.”
