Reports Of My Death Are Greatly Exaggerated 

If bookstores could speak, they might quote  Mark Twain’s “Reports of my death are greatly exaggerated.” The strongest indication that book stores can still thrive comes from Shanghai. A new bookstore on Star Avenue in the Binjiang District in Hangzhou, China is so magnificent that Architectural Digest just did a story on it.

The progressive bookstore features a multitiered reading area, a lounge, a gallery, and a children’s section. If the rest of the world had bookstores like this, more readers might go back to print.

Marcelo Holzinger is not only a talented artist but he is also a great marketer on Facebook. 

Hundreds showed up in Marcelo’s honor. Everyone was connected by Facebook. It’s a great network builder. One post, a few reminders, and a room filled with some of the most creative characters in the greater Miami area.

  1. So glad that bookstores are alive and thriving! Your pictures, as usual, are so interesting! Loved the view of the lady’s behind (in the purple dress). Wonder if that’s the effect she is looking for.
