P&P's Graham: 'Widen Exceedingly Narrow Profit Margins'

"First, to do more to help indies widen exceedingly narrow profit margins, whether by improving terms through ongoing discussions with individual publishers, developing new sources of financing, exploring cost-cutting options, sharing best practices among stores, or other measures. Second, further improve IndieCommerce and better educate stores about how to use online services. Third, promote diversity throughout the bookstore business. And fourth, encourage all of us in ABA to more intensively scan and discuss future trends in the book industry."

--Bradley Graham, co-owner of Politics and Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C., who joined the ABA Board earlier this year, discussing his key goals in a q&a with Bookselling This Week
