I loved the book, Sunny Side Up. It is about a girl, Sunny, who goes alone to visit Florida where her grandfather lives. She finds out her grandfather lives in a place where a bunch of old people live (like really old people). Her brother is having problems at home so instead of going on an amazing vacation with her friend, she has to go to Florida. She has many adventures in Florida with her grandfather and the new boy she meets, Buzz, who is obsessed with comics and introduces Sunny to them and finds out she loves them. Sunny and Buzz end up having a great time in Florida while Sunny tries to forget about the problems her brother is having. Sunny Side Up is one of the best graphic novels ever.

Eight Cousins Far and Wide

IMG_1032

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!!!!!
