Indie Bookstore Shuns eBooks

This photo was taken in the window of independent book store Spoonbill & Sugartown in Brooklyn, NY.

It reads: “‘e-books’ are not books, only books are books. Happiness is a warm book.”

As you can see from the sign in the window, they are not one of the indie book stores that are embracing eBooks and selling them through Google.

Funnily enough some of the other bookstores that they mention as “other great bookshops” include Word, St. Mark’s and Greenlight, all of whom sell eBooks from their websites.
