Reason #173 Why You Should Support Indy Bookstores


I've never visited the Regulator Bookshop in Durham, NC, which is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary. But now it's on my list of must-stop places, all on account of what co-owner Tom Campbell had to say in a story in the Independent Weekly:

"I think we're in the curiosity business. If people are curious about the world, they're going to read books, because you really can't dig into something any other way. I think a lot of people are afraid to be curious these days. Like they're afraid of what they're going to find out: 'The world's becoming a darker place, I don't want to know about it.' I think we've gone through a time where people felt like that, but now I think that people are starting to get curious again. I think that as long as people are curious, we'll be O.K."

Since this one is in North Carolina and not Indianapolis, you might call it an "indie" bookstore to be clear.

Dusty -- That offer alone is worth a road trip.

And anonymous: You're right. The hed should say Indie not Indy. I just did it to see if you were paying attention....
