“There’s a standard line that the independents are collapsing and they’re all going to disappear soon. I think that’s a little dated,” said John Mutter, editor of the online newsletter Shelf Awareness, which tracks the book industry. “Most of the independents that are left are much stronger than the group as a whole before.”
