Why Jeff Mayersohn and his wife bought a bookstore in the age of e-books

The Huffington Post has a neat piece written by Jeff Mayersohn explaining why he and his wife acquired the Harvard Book Store, a privately-owned, independent bookstore located in Cambridge, Massachusetts, in October 2008. Speaking of the bookstore, check out its print-on-demand database, a growing catalog of more than 3.5 million books. If you see something you like, Paige M. Gutenborg, the store’s new book-making robot, will print it up in less than five minutes and ship it to any point on the globe!
