Everyday life in a secondhand bookshop…

The Bookshop On The Corner

I’m somewhat of an introvert. Okay, maybe a lot of an introvert. I wanted to say a tentative hello and introduce myself, well…as much as a shy book lover can, at any rate.

I’m Sarah Smith, and I own The Bookshop on The Corner. It’s a dimly lit, dusty little alcove filled with the most marvelous little treasures, if only you’ll spend some time looking through the precariously stacked piles of books. Most of the books are secondhand, they’ve been well loved. Some have dog-eared pages – bookmarks can be so orderly, and not for all of us. Other books are slightly water damaged – is there anything more joyous than reading a book in a steaming hot bath? You might find a page marked with pen, sections highlighted for later reflection – this is a true measure of a great book.

Myself, well it’s not secret I love books…
