The thing that I miss the most about working at a bookstore is being surrounded by all of those beautiful books.
No more unpacking boxes and discovering new authors. No more receiving ARCs (advance reading copies) to fight over with my manager. *sigh*
Took me a long time to be able to go into a bookstore and refrain from straightening the shelves. And I freely admit that all of my bookshelves at home are alphabetized by author’s last name. At least I don’t have them separated by subject…..although I do have a bookcase for my favorite books, sort of like a bestseller display. I know, I know…pathetic. But once a bookseller, always a book lover. It gets in your blood….
