Love your blog. Are you selling this book?

I just sorted it yesterday, so it's not on any of our websites yet. As with all our books, it's for sale.

Based on the condition, I'd say 5 or 6 bucks.

I'll bet he was happy his parents didn't name him Seymour.

Needed a laugh this morning! :)

Can't remember how I stumbled on your blog but it's an absolutely fabulous concept. Makes me think about all the things I use for bookmarks around here.

But I'm totally jealous you get to work in a used book store. Well...ok...that you can even GO to a used book store.

I'm living in Korea at the moment & not a single English book store in sight - new, used or otherwise. And I desperately miss the smell of old books, the smell of Barnes & Noble and the peaceful quiet of wandering the store.

Keep up the great work!

Much love from an overseas Army wife,
