Busy times for Bibliomaniacs July 22 2015
"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness, it was the epoch of belief, it was the epoch of incredulity, it was the season of Light, it was the season of Darkness, it was the spring of hope, it was the winter of despair, we had everything before us, we had nothing before us, we were all going direct to heaven, we were all going direct the other way - in short, the period was so far like the present period, that some of its noisiest authorities insisted on its being received, for good or for evil, in the superlative degree of comparison only."
It has been a busy time for us at Bookdealers
We have hosted a sale of a fellow Bibliomaniac's collection of books
We also hosted the very bubbly Pearl Siegel as she launched her first (of many we are sure) inspirational book.
We have been surrounded by books.
We have bought and we have sold.
And that is where the problem is.
It seems that wherever I look there is the novel that I have been wanting to read for a very long time
And then I wrestle with myself.
Should I keep it and read it or pass it on to my deserving customers?
It is a hard call.
