Kepler’s selling books online again

Kepler’s is selling books online for the first time since the store closed in August 2005. However, it appears that the store is using the same BookSense template that is used by many other independent bookstores to create a sort of token online presence. Why it took them a year to put up a site that is nearly identical to the one the store had before it closed is beyond me. One of the major problems with the BookSense sites is their lack of metadata, including reviews and reader comments.

    I did a short search on websites of Bay Area independent bookstores but could not find any that had the type of metadata you are talking about. What is an example of a independent bookstore website with this type of service?
