Georgette Coan is the manager of Barbara's Bookstore at Hawthorn Mall in Vernon Hills, IL. She began working for Barbara's in 2010. Her favorite book is "Gone With the Wind" by Margaret Mitchell. "I read this when I was twelve years old and it has stayed with me all these years. Such an epic portrayal of the Civil War and Reconstruction, not to mention the romance between the fiery Scarlett O'Hara and the swashbuckling Rhett Butler. "I have to admit; this may have been responsible for my love of all things history." People still buy paper books because they still long for the feel of a physical volume in their hands, actual books on their bookshelves at home, a way to have an actual library (you can't wrap an E-reader!) to pass onto their families. Books harken back to a more nostalgic era. This new technology isn't for everyone; physical copies of books still offer another choice to those who don't care for the newfangled technology known as E-books and E-readers."
