The Smell of Books

So, as of yesterday, I’m back at work at Barnes and Noble. And what an odd little world it is, to be surrounded by so many  books, by other lovers of the written word, by the smell of paper and brewing coffee. It’s nothing like the days I spent at home watching PBS, or covered in Sweet Potato baby food, or napping with my Peanut. And although I miss him horribly (and really, the naps were quite lovely) I have to say that it’s nice to have conversations with other adults and to talk about something I love, which is reading and books. Not to mention, I’m thrilled to get the discount on books, because now I have full access to all the YA fantasy goodness (Shiver by Maggie Stiefvater is first on my list!) so that I can review them on Tales from the Hollow Tree.

And of course, I’m scheduled to work on Black Friday, so I’ll be here with some fun stories about that. I expect to have a very large Caramel Machiato and maybe a slice of cheesecake to comfort myself after getting yelled at by rabid customers. 😉
