By Edward Nawotka

“There is nothing like browsing in a physical bookstore. That is something you can’t replace,” said Oren Teicher, CEO of the American Booksellers Association, at BookExpo America on Monday. In this brief interview he goes on to discuss the growth of independent bookselling in the US and how the stores can remain competitive against both chain and big-box bookselling and digital competitors.
