Larry Portzline had a great idea: Help save struggling independent bookstores by promoting "Bookstore Tourism," the goal of which is to get booklovers to group up for road trips to nearby mega book hubs like Greenwich Village. He provides most of the necessary tools, and several recommendations for making a successful trip. He also provides a few examples of destinations. I would've preferred to see a much more extensive list of destinations (and one less eastern-centric). Also, a more detailed chapter on the bookstores themselves with brief descriptions of their histories and quirks would've added options, as well as fodder, for potential book-tourists. One idea that Portzline described that strongly resonated with me was that of "Bookcrossing:". Where people are encouraged to read a book and then leave it "out in the wild" for others to find and read before passing it on themselves, Participants are encouraged to record their transactions online so that the books may be tracked, creating a sort of world library. Lots of great book-related ideas around! Portzline promises an updated, and potentially more-detailed, next edition. I have high expectations for this version.
