Great fun to be a bookseller

Thursday morning I came into the store an hour early to meet a rep and a customer asked me if the store was open and of course I let her in. She told me she was leaving Winter Park to go back home and always would stop by to buy a book because she loved the store and wanted to support it.  She asked me for a recommendation and I told her I loved the new book,America Marriage which was alsI an Oprah pick. When it was time for her to check out, she shared with me that owning her own bookstore was her dream job and she actually dreams about it and can see it clearly in her dreams.

Free Speech tested last week

Dear Readers,

It is rare in my world of bookselling that an event causes a Constitutional examination.  A few weeks ago, we got to witness our Constitution being tested when the President tried to stop the release of Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury. As an attorney, I am always fascinated by these types of events from a non-political viewpoint. Regardless of what the text says, I thought it may be interesting to look at the series of events from a Constitutional perspective.
