The sun was warm but the wind was chill.
You know how it is with an April day.
When the sun is out and the wind is still,
You’re one month on in the middle of May.
– Robert Frost, Two Tramps in Mud Time
The door is flung open to let in fresh air. Sure it may be a bit chilly inside the store but it’s April! Haven’t we been patiently waiting for warmer days?
Hannah and I have been busy trying to keep up with the boxes of new arrivals that come in just about daily. A never-ending piece of a used bookstore life. As it should be, right? Boxes of Vermont history books, particularly town histories. Beekeeping. Modern children’s books. Miscellaneous fiction. WWI and WWII. Homesteading. Flower essence and flower gardening. And various others have made their way into the store and getting up on the shelves.
