A Biblio bookseller, Bookman & The Lady, recently wrote an article for Ohio about their business and their love of books.

I can understand why a person would say that…that no one buys books anymore.

Book House has found a new location in nearby Maplewood, Missouri, but the renovation costs on their new space have continued to rise and rise. (more…)
