For the love of bookstores

Want to see something cool?  You can help build an amazing children's bookstore in Decatur, Georgia with children's book artist R.Gregory Christie.  This project was featured in a Publisher's Weekly story earlier this week.



You know what I love?  Bookstores.  When I saw this project on Kickstarter, I knew I wanted to be a supporter.  Check out the video and if you can, contribute a couple of dollars.  Doesn't it seem doable to find 1,000 people to donate $23 each?  $23 is such a reachable number and there are such a huge number of book lovers and bookstore lovers out there.

    1. Oops, now it looks like I have something to hide, doesn't it? I couldn't figure out how to make a link work in a comment, so I'm going to move it to the post itself.
