Ain’t It the Truth!


“–booksellers really are a special breed. No one in their right mind would take up clerking in a bookstore for the salary, and no one in his right mind would want to own one–the margin of profit is too small. So, it has to be a love of readers and reading that makes them do it–along with first dibs on the new books.”

From The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

Note: If you like the format of 84 Charing Cross, you’ll enjoy this. It’s written in the same letter writing style.
