I hope independent bookstores like Strand can hang on. If you don’t live near one, you can order online from Strand or most bookstores. It’s stimulating to go to a store. It’s a big deal for me to have Strand only a 10-15 minute walk from my apartment. But it also feels good to get a book in the mail from Three Lives my not-as-close favorite independent store. All such stores need you to buy your books from them.
