For every job there is always a crazy period in the year. For us, that stretches from October through to December.
October New releases is the time of year where we can be seen ferrying teetering piles of books from one end of the store to the other in what seems like a never ending stream. Most of the time our faces peek out from behind large stacks of books and it’s this time of year that we are reminded of a few things.
- There IS such a thing as too many books.
- We should have worked on our cardio and stamina
- There are not enough hours in the day to read all of the amazing new books that we are suddenly discovering.
