The store already has a whole bunch of programs each month. They have 2 book clubs, called Daytime Book Club and Evening Book Club. They may not be original names, but what a great way to make sure that all of their customers can belong to a book club if they are so inclined. They also have author booksignings (3 authors in January and 5 in February) and Storytime for toddlers and preschoolers (3-4 times each month). And a Reader of the Week along with Staff Recommendations. Plus, I love their website name - www.getyourfaceinabook.com.
You know how I feel about independent bookstores. Every time I come across one, and especially when I learn that it is succeeding, I feel even more optimistic about the future of print books and community bookshops. I am a strong supporter of ebooks and audiobooks (anything that gets people reading), but there's something special about a local independent bookstore.
I've been called everything from courageous to crazy for opening an independent bookstore 12 months ago.
I have been so overwhelmed by the community support we've received! My in-store playlist of favorites includes my staff, our customers and whatever book I've currently got on my nightstand.
