Do you read with your feet?

If libraries are the beating heart of our culture – circulating stories, ideas and history for all – then surely bookshops should be revered.

Bookstores are where we find the freshly published and our favourite reads.

Books are tangible, giftable, receivable, lendable and ultimately recyclable. They grow our brains, educate, inform and entertain.

There’s everything to treasure about our books, writers, publishers and booksellers.

Remember the rise of the video store and the demise of the suburban cinema? 

Fast forward a decade or two, and the video stores were closing, while cinemas revived and have survived.

May our beloved bookstores endure. Survive. Thrive!
