Meet a Bookseller — Wendy

 

What do you do at the bookstore?

My job is to socialize and talk about books. I also carry books around, alphabetize, and clean shelves. All books, all the time!  I need to be as knowledgeable as possible about many different genres of books, although my favorite sections are mystery, cooking, adventure/travel and nature.

Goodbye Summer, Hello Great Reading!

 

Love it or hate it, it’s hard to deny that summer is slowly but surely becoming autumn. In the bookstore, the changes are marked in a variety of ways. For one, our well-loved floors are littered with increasingly more debris from dead leaves. It won’t be long now until we have to shut the door to keep piles of fallen leaves and gusts of cold air from swirling in the door and around the card racks.

My job at the bookstore entails an endless list of tasks. Most imporantly, I am learning how to be a bookseller. Not only am I learning about books and authors, but also learning how to best serve bookstore customers.

What do you do at the bookstore?

I am amongst the ranks of booksellers, and still learning how to be a good one. Helping people find books and recommending new great reads is a big part of my job, but I also do a lot to keep the store in good order. I am helping to host author events now, too, which can be fun.

What do you do at the bookstore?

I'm a bookseller. That means I do a little of everything, from keeping the store tidy to shelving books and putting up displays. The best part about being a bookseller is talking to people about books. That is literally my job. I sell books to people—books that I love and think they will love.
