.....that I run an online book shop. I have been in the book business since August 2006 and just thoroughly love books and my business. I dream of someday opening a brick and mortar book shop. I know some might think that is crazy and that everyone does everything online. I say not true, people love the atmosphere of a great bookstore. I have a pretty great inventory for a small business but I do love browsing through a store full of books while carrying a warm coffee from the coffee spot inside the book store. I am finding though now that Borders is gone we are left with just a couple of average book stores and some kind of cool smaller shops. What I find is lacking in a serious way is friendliness in all these stores, no one greets me when I walk in nor do they ask if they can help me find anything, I expect all of this and more, not because I am a snob but because I love interacting with people and if I am coming into your shop it is to do just that. My point to all of this is that I want to be that store the one where people walk in and feel they are at home, are offered help in a friendly and non-invasive way and are at the very least greeted when they arrive and thanked very much for shopping with us when they are done.
For now you can see our lovely and friendly online shop for some beautiful books and great deals.
