A Neglectful Otter

piles.jpgI know. I haven’t updated this website for a couple of months. Very bad. The good thing is I have been so busy working on inventory. We receive boxes just about daily and I try to go through them as they come in. SPS is my daily thing. Sorting the books, pricing and then shelving. Cleaning when needed. It’s just Hannah and I in the store and we  generally work alone so whoever is in has the responsibility of maintaining the inventory and shelving. I envy those stores who have assistants dedicated to shelving. On top of all that I currently have an overflowing box full of books needing protective covers. Always things to do.

Seriously working on turning this site into an online shop. I think I’m almost ready. It is not only a cost but time commitment. Entering books and keeping the inventory current.

Know the store is doing well. We are busy and all is great!

If you cannot read all your books…fondle them—peer into them, let them fall open where they will, read from the first sentence that arrests the eye, set them back on the shelves with your own hands, arrange them on your own plan so that you at least know where they are. Let them be your friends; let them, at any rate, be your acquaintances. -Winston S. Churchill

  1. Don’t I know it! I own the only used bookstore in my host country, so stocking and shelving ALONE is a hassle. Getting new customers is always a challenge too.
    Don’t worry about your updates; do what you can.
    Stay focused on the love!

    • Wow! I guess I need to follow up on possible responses to my posts. Yikes! I’m so sorry. I finally upgraded my laptop with all new updated programs and I received a notice that someone responded to my current blog post and there was yours. I must to better. 🙂 Where is your shop? -Barbara And no hurry to answer as it took me 5 months to respond to you. 😉
