Yet another reason why independents rock!

Just love this post from Conversational Reading about a great event hosted by San Francisco's The Booksmith that combines a bookswap with a meet and greet and three hours of bookish talk!
I would love to see a proliferation of literary salons springing up in bookstores everywhere - as much as I love to read blogs, nothing beats face to face literary chat with passionate readers.

I wish we had more independent bookshops in London, unfortunatley they're sparse (although strangely Borders went out of business here in the UK too...) It would be lovely to have a little bookshop nearby!
