Quality mark for bookshops in the Netherlands?
NRC reported yesterday in its books supplement that Jean Christophe Boele, director of Dutch publisher Lemniscaat, wants a quality mark for bookshops: 'De echte boekhandel' (the real bookshop), to distinguish good bookshops from wholesale retailers that accidently sell books too. Background seems to be that Lemniscaat apparently has a dispute with internet bookshop bol.com over discounts. The quality mark should show to the market that real bookshops are cool and opinionated. With the quality mark as a logo on the door 'the chaff can be separated from the wheat'. Until 2005 only authorized bookshops were allowed to sell books in the Netherlands.
