The ugly stuff first...I just want to get it out of the way. Miss Prothero had a slew of internet orders this morning. Half of them, she couldn't fulfill. She needs to find a better way to keep inventory!
Now the bad...Another bookstore opened up just down the block. Don't get me wrong. That's not bad. The way I reacted is bad. I was jealous. I was mad. Hadn't I tried to make my bookstore everything for everybody? Then I went down the street and introduced myself. They look like a radical information project, some politics, some economics, some of what Miss P doesn't have. I believe their name is Unity Information. But more on that later. Maybe I need to stop trying to make my bookstore everything to everybody.
The best for last...Poets Chris Ransick and Sheryl Luna will be reading at the store this Sunday. Both made mention of the reading on their blogs, and I thank them for that. If anyone is out there, the reading is June 3 at 4 p.m. The bookstore is located at 1112 N. Santa Fe Drive. Call us if you need directions. The phone number is (303)572-2260.
