In the day and age where it seems bookstores are going the way of flip phones and 8-track tapes, quitting your job to operate one of your own could be perceived as questionable decision. But that is not so, according to Scott Raulsome, who recently purchased Burton’s Bookstore in Greenport.

“I don’t feel like bookstores are dying,” said Raulsome. “Some aren’t doing so well, but independent stores in the right location can thrive. The people in Greenport are happy to have a bookstore. They are proud of it.”
