The other day I woke up to a lovely email from a staff member. She had been on vacation with her family in Florida and they visited a bookstore. Can I just say now, that this is a chronic phenomenon. Bookstore employees can’t seem to stay out of bookstores, even on vacation. So there she is, with her family, at Bookwise in Boca Raton.
Bookwise was dressed up for the holiday and inside Christmas Tree was on display all covered with ornaments made out of bookmarks. It looked like this.
Our staff member got into a conversation with their owner about the tree. I mean, what a cute idea! It must be a real conversation generator. The inevitable, do you have a bookmark from your store?, question came up. Alas, no.
Look closely. Do you see what I see?
THERE WAS ALREADY AN EIGHT COUSINS BOOKMARK ON THE TREE!!!!!
