Waterstone’s & its founder

The founder of Waterstone’s is intent on repurchasing the bookseller if reports here and here are to be believed.

The UK retail book market is undergoing considerable change right now. The threats from online booksellers, and supermarket’s who sell books too, dedicated bookshops especially independents are in an increasingly difficult place.

I have always admired Waterstones as bookshops and would be eager to see ho they would evolve under the direction of their founder once again.
