The Bookstore Lady BlogMusings and books.

I wanted Stuff as much as any other kid, but this feeling — deep and yet ephemeral — felt more important and bigger and much more adult than opening up that remote controlled truck I wanted so badly.
It is fitting then, that on the anniversary of the day my brief tenure in New York began to collapse, I am featured in a short film about my hometown’s downtown revival.
I wouldn’t call this a true review, just some thoughts and reflections I’ve been mulling over in the weeks since I read the advanced reading copy that came to me at the bookstore.
A good number of people come in the store and wonder aloud how great a job it must be to run a bookstore. The answer, in short: it’s a dream job. From here many of these same book-lovers ask how I got into the business, so here’s the history of The Bookstore Lady.
The Downtown Mansfield Scavenger Hunt is back in July 2015! For the entire month of July, kids can search for the image of one of the Carrousel animals in businesses around the downtown area. Prizes can be claimed after finding certain a certain number of them. On Saturday, August 1 we’ll have a party at the Carrousel for everyone who found the animal 20 or more times with carrousel rides, cookies, and prizes.
