Then She Was Gone | Lisa Jewell

Day 10 of #30junebooks is SUMMER!
Here in #Tucson, summer means heat. And since everyone wants a nice air-conditioned place to hang out while the kids are outta school, Bookmans is BUSY all day, every day. 📚
I checked my employee recs shelf this morning, and it was totally empty! So I stocked it up with some fun, light summer reads, plus a couple of faves. 😍 I wonder how many days it‘ll be before it‘s empty again. 🤔 #behindthescenesatbookmans

Megabooks If I were in Tucson, I would try one! I loved my visit out there. Great city! 1mo
Tamra I love recs! 1mo

When it‘s inventory week and Mom goes to work an extra day, you get dragged along. But they didn‘t seem to mind too much. 😏 #raisingreaders #behindthescenesatbookmans

Sarah's Key | Tatiana de Rosnay

We have a huge stack of SARAH‘S KEY in the back room. Plus I turn it down at least once every time I‘m on the trade counter. Plus I have personally thrown away several junky copies of it. WHY are there so many copies of this book trying to come to Bookmans?? 🤣 Was it that terrible? Did they just print too big of a press run? 🤷🏼‍♀️ Have any of you read it? #behindthescenesatbookmans

sammisho I read it and loved it! I tend to see it alot at used book sales. 2mo
Amiable I loved it. Very unsettling read, though. 2mo
nu-bibliophile I loved it too despite that it was sad.

LibrarianRyan I think over a span of 8 years that at least one person a year had to talk up this book at Books Between Bites. Ughhhhh. It‘s the book club pick from hades. 2mo
Tereses Its been lingering on my #TBRpile for a long time..... 2mo
ravenlee When I was at BN this book flew off shelves, but mainly to people who only read a couple books a year (better than nothing, I admit, but not heavy readers). I would guess that‘s why it shows up at used book stores a lot. 2mo
KarenUK Read it with a book club..... very moving,but didn‘t like the present day set epilogue.... (edited) 2mo
juliegumdrop I cried several times reading this. The ending was predictable, and I cried anyway. 2mo

Making up a few of the many hours I missed post-surgery... and this lucky kid got to help me with inventory pre-counts this morning. She was really into it for like 30 minutes. And then not so much. 😬 Also, ahem fellow employees — she was pretty critical of some of your handwriting when checking prices for me. “That‘s a 5?? That looks like an S with a squiggle. How hard is it to write a $5??” 😂😂 #behindthescenesatbookmans

One more of the books that caught my eye while pricing yesterday... have any of you read this? It‘s blurbed by Beatriz Williams, which is what first caught my eye! #behindthescenesatbookmans
