“Booksellers are the envy of many. It’s rare for a receptionist in a doctor’s office, or for the doctor herself, to hear, ‘I’d love to do what you do,’ but it’s a regular occurence in the book trade. There’s a real romance to the idea of being around ideas all day. Now, we love what we do, don’t get us wrong, but it’s more of deep, complicated parental kind of feeling than it is a dose of puppy love. These books offer a clear-eyed, post-honeymoon look at life in the word mines. And yes, some romance still flourishes there.”—Island Books, Mercer Island, WA.
