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.
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.
