Long time LibraryThing pal, BeckyJG, and her partner, Pete, are now living the dream, having just opened their own bookstore, The Book Frog. Congratulations to them both! Read about their bookstore's opening in the link below, or read about it also in today's Shelf Awareness, where it's the top news item.
I recommend checking out Becky's month-long "Liquidation Diary" also, featured in her blog from this past August and September, that poignantly chronicled her last days working as a Borders' employee after having been employed by the company for nearly two full decades. Talk about loyalty. Talk about going through Hell and now entering what I can only imagine must be some semblance of Bookseller Heaven in just a matter of months!
I understand The Book Frog will have a webstore up and running in a short week or so, so even if you don't live just an hour away like me, you can still help support two tried-and-true pros stay in business for a good long time with your online dollars. Screw Amazon! Bless the Book Frog!
I can't wait to go see their store and buy a bunch of books on Saturday with my kids! Photos to follow ....
