Foggy Pine Books in Boone, North Carolina is making a frank appeal. Every bookstore needs to sell a certain number of books every month just to pay rent, wages, insurance etc. in order to survive. Shelf Awareness of 13 November reports Foggy Pine Books as saying “we came in just under the that number last month at 1,008 books sold.” Buy some expensive books from them. Or at least from your local bookstore: they may not have the blackboard, but their needs are just the same.
