Chapter 144 Owning a Book Store

I was all set to sit down and write a nice, bookish post this afternoon. Then Huck came in from playing outside, complaining of a terrible headache. He also has a runny nose and a slight cough. Not normally one to be felled by the common cold, Huck wrapped up in a blanket and asked me to sit with him. He promptly fell asleep cradled on my lap (most unusual behavior for my active 7 year old). Now it’s 8:40 p.m. (California time) and he feels hot to me, perhaps with a fever. So, forgive me, but the bookish post will have to wait until tomorrow, when (I hope) things are better. Tomorrow is the first day of Easter vacation, so it figures that a nasty cold would make its appearance just when we were all set to have a few days of family fun.

In the meantime, I’ve been enjoying and learning from two recent posts over at Scott Brown’s always interesting Fine Books and Collections Blog. In addition to putting out a great magazine about books, Scott has recently become the owner of a bookstore, himself!
