Accent On Books Is In the News (paper)

Sunday's "Asheville Citizen-Times" had an article by Dale Neal about the Asheville bookselling environment, and Accent on Books was one of the stores featured. The overall sense of the article was that, while challenges to independent bookstores are significant, Asheville seems to be unusually supportive to such endeavors for a town its size. The articled featured quotes from Lewis and me as well as from folks at The Captain's Bookshelf, Malaprop's, Once Upon a Time, and the recently closed Reader's Corner. There was also a picture of Lewis in Accent on Books, although some rather scraggly dude managed to get into the picture as well.

Thanks to Dale Neal for his article, and to all of y'all for supporting independent bookstores.
