Synopsis:
An inspiring true story about losing your place, finding your purpose, and building a community one book at a time.   Wendy Welch and her husband had always dreamed of owning a bookstore, so when they left their high-octane jobs for a simpler life in an Appalachian coal town, they seized an unexpected opportunity to pursue thier dream. The only problems? A declining U.S. economy, a small town with no industry, and the advent of the e-book. They also had no idea how to run a bookstore. Against all odds, but with optimism, the help of their Virginian mountain community, and an abiding love for books, they succeeded in establishing more than a thriving business - they built a community.

The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap is the little bookstore that could: how two people, two cats, two dogs, and thirty-eight thousand books helped a small town find its heart. It is a story about people and books, and how together they create community.

Book Description: St Martin s Press, United States, 2012. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 210 x 140 mm. Brand New Book. Wendy Welch and her husband had always dreamed of owning a bookstore. When the opportunity to escape a toxic work environment and run to a struggling Virginia coal mining town presented itself, they took it. And took the plunge into starting their dream as well. They chose to ignore the death of the book, the closing of bookstores across the nation, and the difficult economic environment, and six years later they have carved a bookstore - and a life - out of an Appalachian mountain community. A story of beating bad odds with grace, ingenuity, good books, and single malt, this memoir chronicles two bibliophiles discovering unlikely ways in which daily living and literature intertwine. Their customers - Bob the Mad Irishman, Wee Willie, and The Lady Who Liked Romances, to name a few - come to the shop looking for the kind of interactive wisdom kindles don t spark, and they find friendship, community, and the uncommon pleasure of a good book in good company. The Little Bookstore of Big Stone Gap will make you want to run to the local bookstore, and curl up in an armchair with a treasure in bound pages. Bookseller Inventory # AAZ9781250010636
