The Holiday Rush December 11, 2009

Posted by Galaxy in Uncategorized.

It’s the middle of December and there are some number of days until Christmas, which I refuse to count. Business is steady and picking up daily, and we’re busy filling orders for special holiday gifts. From time to time, there’s a lull in which to collect thoughts and take time to enjoy our customers and the wealth of books around us. [BOOK PLUG: This afternoon, I had a chance to pick up an advance copy of Lori Lansen’s new novel (out in February), The Wife’s Tale. I enjoyed her first novel, The Girls, and after reading the first couple of pages, I’m pretty sure this is the book that’s going to save me from a reading dry spell.]

When we’ve remembered to do so, we’ve tried to capture some of the fun moments happening around the store. Here’s a peek at what’s been going on at The Galaxy Bookshop:

Perusing books with the help of a Bookseller Cat

The lovely and delightful Judith Jones

We had a fantastic crowd turn out for Judith's reading and book signing

Stardust bookseller Sam Z. got a chance to chat with Judith after having his book signed

Enjoying some of the year's best picture books.

Kitten-approved reading

For those curious about our Name the Kitties vote: Meet Cassiopeia Juniper Scout and Comet Jem! (And if you're choice didn't win, feel free to nickname them.)
