I've always been an avid reader. I've always enjoyed seeing the stories come alive in my mind...my mind's eye.
I purchased The Bookstore in 2011. I had never run a book store before but, I love being surrounded by so many books. I can honestly say that this is my favourite place to be and I have met so many wonderful people here.
Some people say that books are dead. That now people are more interested in reading on their Kindle, that no one wants an actual book. Hearing that makes me smile. I think of a cartoon image I saw once of a broom and a book sitting at a bar...the book is looking very sad. The broom asks him what's wrong. The book says,"I'm finished. Everyone wants to read on their iPads and Kindle. No one wants a real book anymore."
The broom responds, "Don't worry, people will still want you. When the vacuum cleaner came out they were saying the same about brooms . Guess what...brooms are still here."
People still love holding a book and turning pages. It's not going to stop. Young families, kids after school do come in to purchase books.
The Bookstore has over 100,000 books, more than 2,000 comics, about 800 DVDs/CDs, and paintings, pictures, collectibles, memorabilia, jewelry, crystals galore! If you don’t see what you are looking for on the website, send a message, call, email,… let me check my inventory.
