I am happy for the approaching weekend and in all honesty happy to put the past month behind me. I won't bore you with the details but in a nutshell I will be transitioning into a different form of book buying during my day job. I will be working more in the textbook industry instead of the general book industry. It does make me sad but I cannot control that shocking truth of the incredible change that Amazon has done to the book industry. In my heart I know that the culture of what we book people know to exisit can never be contained in any digital format, or undersold through any on-line company.
It lives and breathes in every single person that loves books and loves to talk about books. So that means I get to spend more of my creative time telling you all about books that I adore! The exciting news is that it is also a blessing of sorts that I realized how much I love books and sharing my love of them that I will be going back to school for my Masters degree and work towards becoming a children's librarian within a few years. I am quite excited.
Of course that means the GRE- yikes. New adventures for sure, but thanks for hanging in there and being patient as I have been a little absent from this space. More than ever I am pretty sure that I will be that old lady in the woods living in a tiny house making toys and reading books to children!
