Amy: Former Bookseller
When I was in high school I got the best job EVER! I was a bookseller at my local Barnes & Noble. It was perfect for me because I LOVE books and the only drawback (aside from the 50-year-old co-worker hitting on me) was that most of my paycheck was spent within those walls.
Okay that was also a perk too!
Anyway, I stumbled across this webcomic the other day and it was like a trip down memory lane. It’s called Mike: Bookseller and I had to double check where the creator lived because I was positive he had to have come from the same bookstore where I worked. Apparently whether you’re in California or Illinois, all bookstores and bookstore shoppers are exactly the same!
This particular strip pretty much sums up an average work day for a bookseller including my favorite question, “Where are your books by Harry Potter?”
