Lots going on this week, but I should be able to fit in at least a few posts. Here’s what’s on the agenda:
1) Mailing a quote to an institutional library to offer them an interesting book. This is the first time I have done so.
2) Discussing in detail the sale of another book with an interested customer who has requested more information.
3) Compiling a mailing list and printing labels for the Dante catalogue. (Yes, it’s true. It’s almost ready for mailing.)
4) I leave for my course at Rare Book School, held at the University of Virginia, in 6 days! I’ve got a lot of preparation to do around here so that Thoughtful Husband can run the household and take care of Tom and Huck while I’m away.
Wish me luck with all of the above. I am looking forward to all of it, and, while I still have a long way to go to be a successful bookseller, I am accomplishing some of the things I had envisioned when I started my business back in 2007. That feels good!
See you in the stacks!
