    Booktowne, North America
  171 Main Street - Manasquan, NJ           
Having spent my first career in education and been a lover of good books, I hoped my next career would include books. I have always believed every town should have their own community bookstore, a place filled with good books, the type that get people to feel, to think, discuss, laugh and enjoy. To prepare for this goal, I worked part-time at a bookstore and learned the day to day operations. I took a course on the essentials of opening a quality bookstore and visited as many bookstores in New Jersey as I could. I found many bookstore owners to be both warm and generous with their time. Many of these owners have become close colleagues and remain a strong network helping my own bookstore, thrive and grow.

    Livraria Argumento, South America
  Rua Dias Ferreira, 417 - Leblon - Rio de Janeiro, RJ           
Incorporada à vida cultural da cidade do Rio de Janeiro, a Livraria Argumento surgiu na década de setenta, no número 199 da Rua Dias Ferreira, atualmente, número 417. Inicialmente, oferecia ao seu público, livros dos autores 'proibidos' pela repressão da ditadura militar. Autores como Miguel Arraes, Celso Furtado, Paulo Freire, Dias Gomes, Érico Veríssimo, Fernando Henrique Cardoso, Chico Buarque e Barbosa Lima Sobrinho, entre outros - que assinavam artigos no jornal semanal alternativo Opinião e na revista Argumento. Ambas as publicações tiveram a circulação suspensa por imposição da censura e encerraram suas atividades na década de 70.
Foi com o espírito de oposição ao governo que a revista mensal emprestou seu nome e conceito à livraria, que recebeu exilados e importantes pensadores da questão nacional.
No início da década de oitenta, com os primeiros ensaios de uma abertura política, o conceito se consolidou, e nos anos noventa incorporou a atual idéia de aliar a leitura e o consumo de livros ao consumo de Cd's, gastronomia, e eventos, sendo pioneira neste conceito.
Hoje, a Livraria Argumento disponibiliza aos seus leitores três endereços: Leblon, Copacabana e Barra da Tijuca
