Behold, the Mobile Bookstore!

The owner of one of the many U.S. bookstores forced out of business due to skyrocketing rents decided to take his show on the road. He’s bought a decommissioned library bookmobile and plans to set up shop at various local festivals and other special events.

BookTryst posted the details.

While this idea was hatched by a California bookseller, we think it would make sense if attendees at every art festival, craft festival, literary festival, music event, or other public gathering could count on there being a little bookshop parked nearby, selling items related to the event’s theme or purpose.
