Books, Bookstores and True Love

One of my favorite past times, when I am not reading, is visiting bookstores. I have always liked going to bookstores. But I wasn’t always able to enjoy such pleasures. Growing up in Brooklyn, I had to content myself with a weekly visit to the local public library. The one bookstore in my neighborhood sold dusty old second hand books, and new books which were not usually suitable for children. There was also a drug store and a stationary store, which both sold popular novels, which also did not attract much of my attention. But the library had the books divided up according to subjects, so if I was in the mood to read a book about space, animals, or a faraway country, my curiosity was easily satisfied. But mostly I loved the novels. To find a good one, I usually asked the librarian for a recommendation. Because of my librarian’s good taste and refined ways, I read such amazing books as Gone with the Wind, The Phantom Tollbooth, and Little Women at an early age.

It wasn’t until High School, and even more so, college, that I learned the joy of visiting bookstores. Until then my love of owning my own books was mostly satisfied via the wonderful company called Scholastic Books. Periodically, perhaps once a month or once every few months, my teacher would hand out a thin magazine printed on newspaper with lists of books which I could actually own. The day the books arrived at school was a happy day for me. I don’t remember too many of the books I bought from scholastic, but one of the series I enjoyed from them was the Harriet the Spy books.

But bookstores took buying books to a whole new level. Wondering through the aisles of a bookstore on a college campus like U.C. Berkeley, where I was a student, is an experience which can hardly be described in words. The subjects were universally fascinating, the textbooks brimming with the promise of discovery and adventure.  Now, many years later, I am still in awe when I enter a bookstore, and can barely resist purchasing just about everything I touch. I still borrow many books from libraries, but my house is also filled with books that I have purchased, either on-line, from bookstores, second hand, or from various book clubs which I have belonged to. Certainly reading is a lifelong pleasure which I am grateful to be able to enjoy so thoroughly.

The crossroads is Festival already after the third event on the way to the iconic brand. (As opposed to Andrew Cuomo). The lovers of the genre know, that they at get an excellent section on the current state of the music festival. So he makes music on a wide basis, they needed to survive. What can business arm of Clapton learn? As the business driver you can benefit from Clapton’s concept, by deriving the following questions for themselves: what is the message of your industry, your product or your problem solving, it is worth to be passed like a torch to the next generation? Can you enjoy just for like Clapton for his musical style? What partnerships could be placed on the legs competition with the? Clapton’s crossroads concept, three properties stand out especially: one must make the initiator; the overall idea needs luminosity; the joint is dominated by the single. If these three points together, the forces are bundled and the issue received more attention. But how can this crossroads concept on cooperations in economic life transfer and implement? Some examples explain the application: Retail certain retailers within a place could regularly collaborate in cooperation: you could produce the other dealers in and bring out a common newsletter for all customers. It would be possible to offer a common shopping community on Facebook and on the Internet. You could operate together PR and perform action days.

Benefit many companies in the B2B area manufacturers or service providers by the success of its customers. Under the motto we make you better”they could form partnerships and build service packages that help their customers improve their performance. Conceivably, this would be catering for craft enterprises, specialist trader or. Automotive industry the automotive industry could be speeding up progress the development of certain projects in cooperation is the current energy supply and drive issues. Printing industry if is the responsible print shop owners nationwide in the marketing and production would close together and would be willing to cut capacity could grow so many ailing printing business again. Occasional collaborations exist already, the ideas for profitable cooperation can be expanded with a little imagination. “In practice there are occasionally initiatives such as the merger of leading brick manufacturer under the name of my brick house”, who want to push the clay bricks in building, or the Association of packaging machine manufacturers in the region Schwabisch Hall under the name of packaging Valley “.

They want to promote their region as a synonym for excellent packaging machine construction internationally. These examples of cooperation are still notable exceptions. Let us hope that there will be more. FYI: Christian Kalkbrenner Dipl.-kfm. (univ.), restructured numerous companies and helped them with powerful market concepts to new successes. Among other things he built up a profitable cooperation of leading brick manufacturer on the market successfully.
