Quote of the Day

'I Need to Be Out There Connecting with the Community'

"It's a lot harder than I dreamed it would be. You think: 'Oh, because I love books, it should be easy.' But it's not easy because you love books, because it's also a business. I do have a degree in accounting, I have a degree in education, I have a master's degree in library science. I have a lot of things that are necessary to run the store. I also love talking to people, and what I realized is, I don't really want to be here running the store. I want to be out there talking to the people, connecting with people and figuring out what they need and then bringing those resources to them. The store is necessary, but I can get someone else to run it, it doesn't have to be me. I will still pick most of the books, but I need to be out there connecting with the community because that's what I love doing."
