It is the time of year for all of us to seriously think about what we are thankful for, so on behalf of Celia and myself, and at the risk of sounding like I am accepting my Emmy, I would like to thank all of our customers (both locals and the once-or-twice-a-year regulars) for their loyalty, support, and their love of books. We would like to thank our scouts for helping us to supply our customers with great books, while having the "fun of the hunt." We'd like to thank authors everywhere, past and present, for giving us education, instructions, laughs, tears, and entertainment. Last but not least, we would like to thank our amazing staff. They work hard to clean, organize (or fluff as we call it), be knowledgable about the books, and help customers find what they are looking for with a smile and a friendly attitude. And they do all this for flexible hours, a little money, and our undying gratitude. The word of the week - GRATITUDE.
We won't be here on Thursday (one of the three days a year we are closed) as we will be feasting with our families and friends. We hope that you will be doing the same and that we'll see you on Friday with our Christmas books, tree lighting ceremony, fun and refreshments.
-Nancy and Celia
