I don‘t do Black Friday anymore, but Small Business Saturday is one of my favorite days of the year.
Bookseller: Do you have books on hold?
Me: I should have a box!
Bookseller: Yes, you do. 😂😂

I stopped at an indie bookstore in Wilmington on my way home from vacation and no one in the store even acknowledged my presence. So, I stopped at my local indie, Park Road Books, when I got back to Charlotte for a bookseller book hug. I love PRB. #bookhaul #bookhug

peanutnine I really need to stop by there, I've heard such good things 4mo

Today‘s #bookstoremath sponsored by Sally at Park Road Books. I went in for one book (Kushnameh) and left with three. 🤦🏻‍♀️ Sally knows I‘m an easy mark. 😂😂

TrishB Sally knows her stuff! 5mo

There is nothing I love more than a good #bookhaul from an independent bookstore. 😍 East of Houndslow and A Spy in the Struggle are recent MyTBR recommendations, Then the Fish Swallowed Him is a potential pick for #readingasia #iran (I can‘t resist a good title!), and While Justice Sleeps is written by Stacey Abrams and that speaks for itself. 🤩 Oh, and Vinland Saga was my first (and still favorite) manga, so it‘s onto Book Three for me.

Braved the rain for #IndependentBookstoreDay, one of my favorite days of the year. Now, off to read for the rest of this gray, rainy day.

Happy Saturday everyone!

Graciouswarriorprincess I did too and got the tote! Happy reading! 2y

It‘s been a while since I just wandered at my indie bookstore. I went to pick up Amanda Gorman‘s poem, which I ordered earlier this week. Naturally, I found a couple other books that insisted on coming home with me. Who am I to say no? (Also, how beautiful is this weather? Not a cloud in the sky!)

Lesanne Hey, that‘s where I live! 😊 it is truly a beautiful day today. ❤️🌞 2y
DGRachel @Lesanne Hello neighbor! 💖 I think we‘re supposed to have this gorgeous weather all week. ☀️ 2y
Lesanne @DGRachel That would be wonderful! 2y

#bookhaul My preorders for The Bladebone and Tristan Strong Destroys the World arrived at my local indie, so I picked them up after work today. I also grabbed Untamed by Glennon Doyle because a sorority sister tagged me in Glendon‘s We Can Do Hard Things posts with small ways to leave it all on the field this election cycle, to fight for the soul of this country and its people, and I was inspired to read her book. 💖

My work bonus arrived. Originally, I had planned to put funds aside for April‘s independent bookstore day. However, with events being canceled everywhere, including book signings, while people try to #flattenthecurve on COVID-19, I wanted to support my local indie now. I tried not to go overboard, and sadly there were three or four other books that I forgot. 🤦🏻‍♀️🤣🤣 I‘m excited for these to arrive, though.

BarbaraTheBibliophage Fun! I wish I could shop and support them. Had to shutter my business for the rest of March due to COVID-19. Hoping to be back to work in April. (I am well, just joining the effort to #flattenthecurve.) 3y
DGRachel @BarbaraTheBibliophage I‘m so sorry you had to close shop, even temporarily. I know I‘m lucky to be able to support local businesses now. Let‘s be honest, I should probably be saving not spending as I work in an industry that is traditionally slower to feel economic downturns but also much slower to recover, so we‘ll likely get hit with layoffs in a year or two related to financial costs of this. 😢 3y
BarbaraTheBibliophage @DGRachel That‘s a different kind of curve. Thankfully, I own a gazillion unread books! 3y

...and the #bookhaul for #smallbusinesssaturday 2019. My stack is on the left. The right are all of @dsfisher ‘s picks. I‘ll be borrowing a couple of hers, for sure. 😍

Now, we must decorate the Christmas tree. I have starfish garland to make. Happy Saturday, Litsy. May you all have a wonderful, relaxing weekend!

LeahBergen Whoa! Well done, you two!! 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 3y

TheBookHippie Did you get your book back ??? 😭😭😭 3y
DGRachel @TheBookHippie The postal carrier is apparently running very late today. Mail hasn‘t been delivered yet, but I think my book was supposed to be in today‘s mail. I‘ll let you know as soon as it arrives. 😊 3y
TheBookHippie @DGRachel I swear my mail is not here yet, last night it came at 630pm 3y
DGRachel @TheBookHippie The package arrived! Thank you. Did you mean to include a second book? It looks like a library book, so let me know if I need to send it back. 😱 3y
TheBookHippie @DGRachel yes!!!!! Library SALE!!! I see the note I wrote is here 🤣🤣🤣🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️😳 3y
TheBookHippie Anyway I thought you‘d enjoy it! 3y
TheBookHippie Ohhh should be a bookmark! 3y
DGRachel @TheBookHippie Yes! There is a bookmark, too. Thank you so much. I love a good retelling! That was so kind and thoughtful of you. 🥰 I will add it to my list of books to read next June when I plan to catch up on the books I‘ve been gifted by Litsy! 3y
TheBookHippie @DGRachel clearly I‘ve been busy since the note is here explaining it all🤦🏽‍♀️🤦🏽‍♀️🙄 ENJOY! ❤️ 3y

Apparently, @dsfisher and I have decided to make #booksinabox a #smallbusinesssaturday at #Parkroadbooks a tradition. Last year was the first time I‘d ever bought so many books at one time that I needed a box to carry the purchases home. We may have exceeded last year‘s stack. 😆😆 (actual haul in next post)
