    I like the idea of sipping coffee while browsing through in a bookshop so yeah it would be nice if i get to have a bookshop by the corner that comes with a small coffee bar.

    I would rather own a coffee shop, where people could read their books.

    Coffee shop is better. Book shop can generate little profit.

    I like the idea of owning a book shop, where I can lease out a stand to a coffee shop at its corner

    I'd combine the two so that people can drink coffee while picking a book smile I think a place like that encourages people to connect and talk about books--could it be any better!!

    I agree - combine the two, with comfy chairs so you could sit down and preview the books, and just a small coffee bar.

    I say combine the two but if I had to choose one or the other at first thought it would probably be a coffee shop. I think that it would be more economic to own a coffee shop. I'm not completely sure of the statistics but I would venture to say that more American's drink coffee than read books.

    Also with the introduction of eReaders the future of bookstores is in jeopardy. It is uncertain if the bookstores that are already out there will be able to survive the coming decades. Therefore, I believe that people will always want to enjoy a gourmet cup of coffee prepared by someone else and buy there books online.
