Adding another slant to this conversation is the difficulties of the Independent Bookseller. Not that I know a lot about them, other than one in my village that doubles as a small cafe as well.

They have joined a scheme to support the Indie Bookseller called Just One Book. It is supported by a wide number of celebs including Twiggy and Michael Palin.
