The Secret Bookstore of New York

After rising rent forced his secondhand bookstore out of New York City, Michael Seidenberg runs his shop out of his house. He’s less-than-optimistic about the future of literature; he says, “I don’t feel like, ‘Oh, I’m going to do this and now everyone’s going to read all the books and the forgotten authors.’ It’s a losing battle, we’ve lost. I just want to do as much as I can.” An admirable sentiment. What can each of us do for books?
