Federal bookstore rebrands itself
By The Post's Lisa Rein:
Book sales are down nationwide, independents are gasping for air, and the future for bricks-and-mortar bookstores looks bleak. Government is going green and thrifty.
So, what's a new government bookstore that refuses to give in to the scanned, Googled, digital Zeitgeist doing steps from Capitol Hill?
The federal government may be moving its records and much of its whopping documentation of the legislative process online. But the Government Printing Office has rebranded and overhauled its once money-losing bookstore in the belief that a digital file cannot entirely replace the touch and smell and feel of a book. Even a book like the U.S. Army's "War Surgery in Afghanistan and Iraq."
