    Thanks, Marsha! I wondered if you’d notice that Australia didn’t have its own subhead. One of the barn bookstores is in Daylesford, Victoria, though.

    I feel a bit guilty about the Aussie list, given that I hardly go into a these very good bookshops these days. They are not located close to me, and it’s easy for me to order online or go to my local shop.

    Some bookstores are compensating for the loss of business by adding wine or coffee bars and hosting more events to attract people into the stores. Times change.
