Porter Square Books

This bookstore, in Massachusetts, apparently has a "kiosk" with Kobo. If you want to support Porter Square Books, and want to buy one of my ebooks, please consider clicking on http://www.portersquarebooks.com/search/kobo/elizabeth%20mccoy .

They have no idea I'm putting this on my Dreamwidth Journal/Blog, and have never even met me. We're not even in the same state. But I read an excerpt from an interview with Josh Cook of Porter Square Books, which included:
If I could get one wish from the ghost of Sylvia Beach, it’s that she, or someone who cares about the inherent value of books, gets a seat in those boardrooms to advocate for readers not consumers, for books as a pillar of culture not as a unit of sales, and for bookstores as community centers not retail outlets and merchandise showrooms. And yes, I can totally see my house from the high horse I’m on right now.

I'm a bit of a sucker for that last line, so for what it's worth... There's a link that might do a little to make both me and Porter Square Books a little happier. :)
