Food For Thought Books ends the year on a positive note
Food For Thought Books will live to see their 38th year in business thanks to generous customers who came together via the Indiegogo fundraising site to the tune of over $40,000. Not bad considering the goal was $38,000. Actually not bad period.
The left of center bookstore has been a mainstay in the downtown since the early 1970s back before Al Gore invented the Internet. But now, everything has changed -- and bookstores, newspapers and video rental stores are under the gun. More like an assault rifle.
Meanwhile just around the corner, fair and balanced Amherst Books -- also in a building owned by Barry Roberts -- seems to be weathering the storm.
