Independent booksellers are beginning to offer free wi fi to increase customer traffic. Bridget Rothenberger told Bookseller This Week that offering free wi-fi was “one of the smartest decisions” and that she would “recommend it to every bookstore.”
I love free wi-fi. Panera Bread offers it free but Barnes & Noble only offers a pay (as does Borders). Guess where I go to get a snack and read my book? Yep, Panera. If there was a bookstore that offered free wi-fi, I would be there instead.
