Essentially this was the point of the blogpost.
We are a small bookshop in Wood Green. The e-book market is very competitive. We want to have some of the market, but being a small bookshop in Wood Green, we don't get much of a say in the matter.
But what if a big group of us like-minded Independent Bookshops got together and decided what was best for us. We could then approach E-Book suppliers, as a group of shops and see if we could negotiate something better.
So far we've had 16 (maybe even 17) bookshops show an interest, which I think is a pretty good start.
One of those bookshops suggested that it would be good to get a Private Facebook Group set up, so that we can chat and share our thoughts. So I have done.
It's called "E-Books for Independents".
Because it's private and because I set it up, this means that initially, I can only invite my Facebook Friends. (once you join, you can invite your own friends). So, this is a message to all the Bookshops who are interested in joining.
Please be my friend.
I am Simon Key on Facebook and I look like this.
When you send the request, please mention E-Books, so I can add you to the group straight away.
I hope this is going to work.
