About The Store Next Door
The Store Next Door podcast is about bookstores, booksellers, and the authors behind your favorite books. One of the many misconceptions about the book business is that bookstores are disappearing from the business landscape. In fact, according to Statistica, the number of independent bookstores has increased year over from 2009 to 2019. The purpose of the The Store Next Door is to promote and celebrate the unique people, places, and products that are driving this growth and creating the book-loving communities we need to function and prosper as an educated society.
