NY Bookstore Survives Changes in Publishing Industry
VOAVideo: NY Bookstore Survives Changes in Publishing Industry
Books and bookstores, have been having a hard time in the United States in the last few years. Not long ago, large discount booksellers drove many small, independent book stores out of business. Now, those superstores are taking a hit from on-line and digital book sellers. Borders -- the country's number two book chain -- recently declared bankruptcy and Amazon says it is now selling more e-books than printed ones. But in New York City, there's a family-owned, independent book store that is still going strong.
