Cracking Open a New Book Store
The owners of North Park’s brand-spanking new Verbatim Books are used to people asking them why they’d open a physical bookstore when the whole world’s gone digital.
Want to chase down a copy of the new Keith Richards bio your friend recommended? That’s a job for an e-reader, or Amazon.

Our culture writer Kinsee Morlan sits down with the new owners in this week’s edition of the Culture Report.
