Prayer Request and News about re-opening the shop

Hello everyone!

First – Prayer request: I am having gallbladder surgery Monday the 30th. I had an “attack” a few days before New Yrs. I have since had a work up and a very strong recommendation to have it removed (not just 1-2 stones a “gravel pit”). So.. I am asking for prayer for my health, kids away at school that cannot be here piece of mind and comfort, physicians ability, etc. After my auto accident a few yrs ago, I really don’t want to spend ANY time at the hospital but also want to head off further problems..

Second- It is time to think about re- opening the shop. I have been very busy selling online since I closed in Nov. Last year was the shop’s biggest yr yet!!  Some of you have had some rather large checks over the last year and I appreciate your sharing your books with me and hope to continue our success in finding them new homes.

Regular Hours will resume Wednesday February 15th 1-5pm.

Wednesday thoughts

I wasn’t very busy today so I had time to go through the bookstore shelves a bit. I am always excited when I find an old classic that I loved or a new classic that I haven’t read yet. As it is the middle of September and my goal for this summer was to read as many “juvenile fiction” books as I could, I thought I would choose a few more. Customers often ask me for a recommendation and to give a book a thumbs up, or not, I think I should have read the book. So far this summer I have already read eleven. There are at least two more to read before “fall” is official. Most of the choices were good stories. A few had some challenging vocabulary (a plus in my book) and most had excellent character development. I must say that I prefer historical fiction over general fiction. I have always had a soft spot for pioneers and queens. None of the books were excessively long- easier to read quite a few that way. Here is my list: A Sprig of Broom, Great Gatsby, Miracles on Maple Hill, Indian captive, the Cabin Faced West, Martin the Warrior, Thimble Summer, 100 Dresses, Homeless Bird, the Glass Castle and the Life of Pi. I think the last two will be: Ginger Pye and the Twenty One Balloons. Happy reading! I am actually looking forward to challenging myself to read even more over the next season- I don’t think it is possible to run out of good books to read!
