Thanks @Mitch for posting!

“Isn‘t there somebody who can answer my questions without having to look in a book?”🤔 You know it! #librarians #booksellers


Andrew65 I was amazed recently when a librarian had never heard of Daphne Du Maurier. (edited) 2mo
RowReads1 @Andrew Knowledge varies with the individual 🖥. 2mo
LibrarianRyan @Andrew65 I can totally believe that. Very rarely do you talk authors or books in library school. And I went 15 years ago, and it's only gotten more true. About the the only one who discuss books are those studying to be a school librarian. 2mo

Diary of a Bookseller | Shaun Bythell

Surprised by how much I laughed while reading this book! Blythell‘s sense of humor is wry; and he yanks off a veil of romantic ideas of what it is to deal in used books in a Scottish village in the age of Amazon. Check out “Reader‘s Delight” on YouTube😁. #booksellers #readersdelight

Found this at the bookstore this morning. I needed a good laugh! 😆😂😆

Customer: Do you have a copy of 1986?
Bookseller: 1986?
Customer: Yeah, Orwell.
Bookseller: Oh - 1984.
Customer: No, I‘m sure it‘s 1986; I‘ve always remembered it because it‘s the year I was born.
Bookseller: ...

I am sure the #Librarians and #Booksellers out there can relate 😂

Any other #booksellers heading to Memphis for #wi13?
Please forgive my very messy bedroom! I'm both busy and full of shame.

Tamra No shame allowed. 2y
Reecaspieces Ok what is wi13. I do not live far from Memphis so what am I missing. And safe travels. 2y
everlocalwest @Reecaspieces #wi13 is the tag for Winter Institute which is basically a few days of bookseller school. It's amazing! There are panels and roundtables for booksellers to share ideas. There are authors and publishers promoting new books. It's a wonderland. 2y

BookNAround Drats! I‘ve gone the past two years but not going this year (although I went as an exhibitor rather than a bookseller). 2y

All of our stores were closed yesterday for #Stella, but that just means our staff has extra time to brush up on their book recommendations!
