A man walked in the bookstore today and said we had helped him last Christmas to find books for ten of his grandkids- I didn’t remember him but I remembered doing that!- and wanted to know if we’d do it again this year. Naturally, I said yes! I made a list of his grandchildren’s ages and reading levels and reading preferences and (I don’t know why it matters but it does) their sexes. I was free to pick out any book and to please gift wrap them for him. He then proceeded to do other errands and I was like a personal shopper picking out books. It was super fun, actually. Since he wasn’t going to get to see the books, I had written down why they were the perfect choice for each grandkid. I hope the books will be enjoyed!
Another interesting customer today was an aspiring children’s book author and illustrator. I love encouraging others to pursue their dreams. I like helping them find resources and giving them advice which is funny considering I need all the help I can get myself- even more so than they do!
Now, for the books:
