I don't know why you would want to start a bookshop, tight margins and many companies going out of business in no small part due to Amazon.

Apart from the e-books is the way to go. Printed literature is going downhill

You would be best starting off with Wordpress and then adding on WooCommerce

Then maybe this for the barcodes
