The Birthday Bash!

My wife had her birthday celebration a couple days ago. I took the day off. We started with homemade waffles. We went to a neighborhood nail spa and got her a mani-pedi. We went to see Jojo Rabbit, an award-winning movie with an amazing cast. I fixed a seasoned steak dinner with baked potato. TheContinue reading “The Birthday Bash!”

Got Some Books for Me!

Someone in the bookstore owners group recommended a title for book retailers wanting to operate pop up stores and I had to check it out. I found a couple more titles along the way which pertain to pricing and the economics of owning a bookstore.

I made it to lunch!

Oh, the first real day back after the holidays is always the hardest. All the traffic and workflow and business is all back in full swing. I suppose it is the epitome of idiocy to complain about having lots of business, right? Always grateful for business. I hope all of you are bolstering up forContinue reading “I made it to lunch!”

I haven’t dug into that yet but plan to do so soon after I write this post. It’sContinue reading “Day Four: Half Price Books!”

Day Three: Starting to Alternate Those Resolutions

The best best of survival for my New Year’s resolutions was to make a bunch of them and alternate them as needed to keep the momentum going. If I had one resolution, I’d spend too much time and effort worrying about trying to make that happen and I’d get bored or frustrated. With a wholeContinue reading “Day Three: Starting to Alternate Those Resolutions”

The Beginning of a Plan

I need books. I plan to sell books. I will have a selection of used and (some) new books which I will sell at various popup locations in my neighborhood and surrounding area. I hope to be able to visit each site monthly and develop a routine which clients will come to learn and love.Continue reading “The Beginning of a Plan”
