Fleeting Pages

Have you guys seen this?

The idea is that this “pop-up book emporium” will take over an empty Borders bookstore and sell independent and self-published books for a month.  The organizers also plan to host events and raffles over the course of the project.  A celebration of the written-word, so to speak.

Check it out.  If I were in Pittsburgh, I would totally be hitting this up.  And to all you indies out there, consider sending out your stuff.

We live in a crazy, beautiful, mixed-up world.

    I like that idea, especially because it gives a whole new group of authors a change to gain publicity for their work. When I buy books, I often pick up the ones that happen to catch my eye, like the ones that are out on the display tables. It's good in that I've found a lot of books that way, but on the other hand I might have missed out on all the independent and self-published books that don't get the same attention. That'd be cool if they did something like that in Chicago.

    I'll be in Pittsburgh for the Pennwriters Conference and visiting my sister in May. I hope it's still there. I'm interested to see the indie side of publishing. It's sort of a kick in the face while Border's is down by moving in to the empty bookstore, but survival of the fittest.

    Yeah, I agree that it's a shame that they did this while Borders is restructuring, but at the same time it gives authors a chance to sell their books in a space that would otherwise become something that's not a bookstore.Good luck at the Pennwriters Conference! It sounds fun.
