College Store News Interview
With the start of the school year there are always news stories about textbooks. Some of these involve store interviews. Abbie Shellist, Assistant Director of the University of Tennessee Bookstore via WBIR, their local TV station, provided a great interview for a story that focused on traditional versus digital course materials. Final quote by the anchorwoman, "It looks like e-books are here to stay."
If other stores have been involved in local interviews -- please share.
