  1. Wonderful story to read on this Sunday morning. I don’t think future generations are going to shop in brick and mortar stores like we did so it is great he’s getting a good start with online sales. They don’t know what they’re missing by visiting a bookstore like this in person, and applause to someone with a large social media presence helping the small guy.

    1. Thank you. And since ‘together we rise’, I will feel uplifted when you tell me you are organizing your best posts into one book. Maybe you can call it “Together We Rise”. I will keep nagging you, Brad. Get cracking.

      1. Uh oh. I’ve walked into your trap. 🙂 Truthfully I don’t feel very passionate about creating a book. I never aspired to be a writer, but enjoy the expression and connection with others.

  2. Thanks for this, Cynthia. I couldn’t leave a comment on the other site, but Neil Gaiman kept popping up in my Twitter feed and I went to have a look and thought “this guy is sooo nice!” and followed him. He has continued to be responsive and generous in his tweets, so I’m glad his followers surged forth for this bookstore. And I’m sure the service and range of books will keep some of them coming back. What a heartening story!
