This week I’m celebrating selfies, tweets, and Summer Reading!
Fun Times with Friends
I take an unhealthy amount of selfies so I’ve proclaimed myself as the Earl of Selfies. Here are some I took recently with friends.
Recently, there seemed to be a streak of days where my days have been made significantly better because of the people who come to Green Bean Books, the children’s bookstore where I work. Here are some recent tweets where I’m practically gushing about them!
I so love when people recognize me from the bookstore and they know my name. It always feels like we’re in a secret society of readers.
When my favorite customers come to the store it’s like a summertime party with ice cream. Not literally of course. But it feels that way.
Not to sound like a broken record but we have the best customers. It feels so good to feel appreciated for something I love doing!

Shelf Awareness which is a great resource for readers, is celebrating their 10th anniversary by giving away 10 $100 gift cards to use at your favorite local (preferably independent) bookstore. Enter here.
Audio/Video Pick of the Week
I got the following message on the Facebook page of this blog:
“Hello, Earl! I came across a stanza of Summer Readin’ in a google search. I’ve been hunting for the author…I believe it is you? Well, we took that thread and used it with our students to make this awesome video. I hope you can share it with your library and teacher friends for their students. Happy summer and enjoy the show! Thanks for the fun inspiration. Amy”
How cool is that? And it’s my first time seeing my name on the credits! I feel like Howard Ashman! They did a great job with the video so that’s why it’s my Audio/Video Pick of the Week:
What are you celebrating this week?
