At a time when there is much heated discussion about the future of bookshops and of books themselves, Rod Younger has recently launched Books4Spain (www.books4spain.com), an online specialist bookshop dedicated to books set in, or about, Spain written in English. Books4Spain has two clear objectives:
· to enable people to discover Spain and its rich history and culture through books, and
• to re-create the experience and benefits of a traditional bricks & mortar independent bookshop, but with the added convenience afforded by the Internet and technology to offer better choice, an easier way to discover books about Spain.
Rod will discuss some of the trends and developments in the book industry - both publishing and retailing, some of the legal, tax and technical issues faced in establishing Books4Spain and how he thinks Books4Spain can compete with the likes of Amazon.
