    I am unsure a revival is in the cards.

    It's not as bleak as all that, there's been an uptick in the last few years and the enthusiasm is there. The issue is the same ones facing all small businesses, namely, rent. Amazon doesn't cut into business as much as people think, tho the two most common things booksellers hear are "Has your business been hurt by Amazon?" or "Why don't you match their prices?"

    Both are usually followed by "I'd rather support you than Amazon". People are very passive aggressive.
